Signing with "Friends"

Children love their special friends... 
Sometimes my daughter brings her dog to class to be her "baby" while I teach the other babies.  He she is teaching him about opposites as I prepared for class last week.

This kind of role playing is important for children.  It is practicing social skills, showing a mastery of the signs/vocabulary (students becomes the teacher) and is fun for them!
An interesting thing to note is that when her dog "signs" he uses his ears to make the signs, not his paws...
