Teaching Tips

• Show your child the sign and then show them a real (or toy) bat. Make the visual connection of how the sign looks a lot like how you use the object.
• Using our dictionary, learn some signs for other sports, and then ask your child which sport they prefer to play by using the signs and giving them a choice.
