Teaching Tips:

  • Create family games for kids based on who is a boy and who is a girl. Talk about each member of the family. You can say something like, “Is Mommy a boy or a girl? Sign girl! Is brother a boy or a girl? Sign boy!” You can extend this to non-immediate family members and friends too.
  • Flip through a child’s magazine together and look at the different characters on each page. Find the girls and show the sign for girl.
