As we head into the season of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we’ll be helping our kids to plan and create fun gifts and activities to honor their parents. So as we work on these activities, let’s think of a few signs we could help our kids learn in the process. This family celebration time of year is a perfect time to learn some fun family signs together.
The most obvious place to start is with family names. The People section of our free Signing Time Dictionary has instructions for signing several names for people in our communities. That includes names for family members. During this time of year, we could learn the signs for mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa. This is a really easy way to learn some fun family signs together.
We might celebrate these family days at home or somewhere else. So whether you’re planning to celebrate at home or at a restaurant or at someone else’s home, you can help your kids learn to sign the place you’re going. The Signing Time Dictionary has another section focused on Places. And some useful signs might be the ones for home, outside, restaurant, or house. While we’re talking about places, we could check out the sign for go too!
We also tend to talk a lot about helping during this season, so we could learn the sign for help!
