  • There's Many Reasons to SING & SIGN w/ Your Baby

    How many finger play songs do you know? Most of us are familiar with at least 5 or 6 that come to mind very easily:

    Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
    Itsy Bitsy Spider
    Where is Thumbkin
    The Wheels on the Bus
    Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes
    Patty Cake

    These finger plays probably came into play because caregivers became aware that babies watched our movements and enjoyed them. We all move some when we talk. Little sing song nursery rhymes easily incorporate body movements that captivate babies, toddlers and preschoolers and even big kids. It doesn't take them too long to begin to mimic our movements.

    Well, what if we add in true ASL signs to these fun songs we all know and love? I think it provides an opportunity for your fun exchange to be a true communication learning opportunity.

    As you can see in the sample below, it is quite easy to pick up the ASL signs for Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
