teaching saari to sign

Postby threenorns » 19 Aug 2007, 14:24

apparently it can be done at a very early age, so i guess i'd better start, eh? it'd be nice not to have to play 20 questions every time she cries.

oh, dear gods: click "asl for babies", then under M check out the sign for 'milk'. good grief (would help if she didn't look so pissed off)

Yeah, why does the signer for milk and other things look angry?

I saw a program on TV once ... it was about babies who could sign. They were way ahead of their peers who could not sign. But, then ... Saari is way ahead of her peers already, signing or not!

after totally forgetting that it'll take a good while before Precious starts to speak Coherently, i'd recommend ASL to anyone!

all the way home punkin and i would look at each other with that "translation pls!" look and sometimes one or the other got it.

I know of babies signing even without the parents knowledge. It is really just to look; my deaf brother has an easy time reading those babies. It is quite natural really

not to mention that it's a useful language to learn regardless.

They have a whole bunch of people. I don't know why they look mad. Maybe they were told not to smile? But, I learned the sign for Aunt! I think Evilante is this face :o with the sign for aunt! :lmao4:

There is something called "baby signs" I used with Jacob when he was really young, similar to asl but a little more basic.

:(

i gave up. i tried for a few months but honestly, she'll be talking long before she's signing. every time i try, she just gives me this quizzical half-smile, like, "yyyyyah... okay, there, mom."

besides... when you aren't that used to signing yourself it is hard to teach it anyhows...
