New Words!

Elijah has been signing up a storm. Since Monday he has learned to sign: bear, lamb, banana, avocado and water. Today, I thought he was signing avocado so I went to cut and serve this food. However, when I came back with green cut avocado, Elijah looked at me shook his head and signed banana. I realized that these two signs look very close together at this point.

This was a good reminder that children use signing approximations at first until they perfect a sign!

Happy Signing
