Baby Sign Language – Wednesday’s ASL Word

In classes, I encourage families to introduce new signs each week. This is usually based on our new weekly theme. Your little one’s first signs maybe very surprising! For example: Mr E’s second word was “light” followed by “fan”! Miss K’s second word was “puppy” at just 7 months of age.

 

What is Mr. E signing?

share

Keep learning new signs and find fun ways to sign, play & explore with our little one!

 

(Hint: Mr. E is signing “share”)
