Sign Language Update

I decided to pick up some Signing Time videos for E. I know I promised not to let her watch TV but I LOVE these videos and I am hoping they help E and I to improve our signing. Has anyone used them? I have been signing with her for about 6 months and she does sign here and there but she is quite selective about when and where she will sign.

The words she can sign so far are listed below. Some she only does once in a while- like mouse. Some she does a zillion times a day liker butterfly and cat. There is no rhyme or reason to her signing. I try very hard to sign all day long but I am still learning signs myself. Several words I have been signing for months and months and she just doesn't do- like duck, mom, dad, and many many more. Anyhoo, here is the list.

  1. eat
  2. more
  3. milk
  4. baby
  5. ball
  6. bath
  7. bear
  8. bed
  9. brush (hair)
  10. butterfly
  11. cat
  12. dog
  13. all done
  14. fish
  15. flower
  16. hat
  17. help (non-ASL)
  18. milk
  19. monkey
  20. light
  21. moon
  22. mouse
  23. bee
  24. music
  25. shoes
  26. toothbrush
  27. up

Here is a snippet of the video I found on YouTube!

I was never really into the signing thing for Avery when he was born but they have taught him at daycare and I really love it now!! I think this is super great!

Looks like a pretty impressive list to me. The only one that Madison did constantly was "more". Now that we've started with Stella she is getting into it though.

Kaelin is signing and talking at the same time exciting!

I'm impressed that E know Monkey!

Way to go, E! Esme doesn't know nearly as many; I've been a bit neglectful:(. I bought a Signing Time DVD that I'm looking forward to getting one of these days, but so far it's just been the little I know plus what's available on YouTube...
