Teaching Animal Signs ~ Chris

Teaching animals signs to baby’s is a hoot!  Why you ask?  Well, because you get to make silly sounds.  I know you probably don’t have the best ELEPHANT sound, but I bet even you can make a MONKEY sound (we’re distantly related, right?)!  Why stop there, throw in sounds for all animal signs, this will help your baby learn the signs because it will motivate him.  It also helps build associations in his head and ties in an extra auditory stimulus which couples with his visual senses (the sign) and his kinesthetic (sense of touch – when doing the sign).  Plus you should see the look on his face when you try to blow out an ELEPHANT sound/sign!  I loved my little guys elephant sound and so did Grandma!
