Years ago, when the girls were just about a year old and Ethan was just about three, I wrote a post about baby sign language and how we use it in our home. BabySignLanguage.com reached out to me again, and wanted me to share their baby sign language kit with my readers and I jumped at the opportunity! Why? Because I know that teaching your baby to talk with sign language for babies really works.
Sign Language For Babies
The Deluxe Baby Sign Language Kit includes everything you need to get started teaching your baby to sign. The kit includes:
• Flash Cards – 52 sturdy board (4×6 inches) flash cards, covering a variety of basic signs. The flash cards allow you to teach words, such as animal names, that Baby is not exposed to in everyday life. The face of the flash cards shows the word and image for the child. The back of the flash cards show how the sign is performed, a handy reminder for the adult.
• BSL Guide Book – shows you how to teach your child how to sign. The book begins with a Quick Start Guide that will teach you your first signs and having you ready to sign in 30 minutes. As your baby progresses, you can delve into more advanced topics like combining signs to make phrases, using props, and transitioning to speech.
• Signing Dictionary Dictionary – contains over 600 signs including the most common words, the alphabet and numbers. The dictionary helps you expand your child’s vocabulary, and has the breadth of coverage that lets you follow your child’s interests. Each sign is illustrated with two diagrams, showing you the starting position, the ending position, and intermediate motion.
• Wall Chart – the 24′ x 36′ chart includes 22 basic signs, and makes a handy reminder for caregivers. The Baby Sign Language Wall Chart covers basic signs, like eat, drink, and sleep. Hang the poster in Baby’s Nursery to help babysitters, or other occasional caregivers learn and decode the most commonly used baby signs.
We actually hung the wall chart in my girls’ room because they think learning signs is the coolest thing EVER!
And just like Ethan used to do when he was little the girls will do signs without even realizing they are doing them. I still occasionally see please, thank you, or more. I love that they still remember! And while Ethan has outgrown signing, if you ask him to do a particular sign he still can.
So head over To BabySignLanguage.com to check out lots of free information, like the Top 10 Starter Signs for sign language for babies and lots of other tips, as well as checking out the kits they offer. It’s a fun way to interact with baby! The Deluxe Baby Sign Language Kit would also make a great baby shower gift or Christmas gift for a mom-to-be or new mom.
I wrote this post for my niece, who is now much older, but who was born with a hearing problem. She told me recently that she wanted to learn how to sign, and I thought this would be an easy and fun way for her to learn the basics. She is even talking about working with kids with hearing impediments, and I hope she does!
