Teaching Tips:

  • Learning sign language at home is fun when you get to use everyday objects that are very familiar to your child. All through the colder months, practice signing hat each time you bundle up to go outside.
  • Having a bit of a battle over your child wearing a warm hat? Try to find one that is especially fun to wear. There are knit hats that have been created into all sorts of fun animals and characters. Choose one your child will love and encourage them to pretend to be that animal or character after they put it on. Sign hat along with the pretend play.
