Sign Of The Week 今週の手話 Sun お日様

The Sign of the Week this week is sun.

Infants and toddlers are very interested in the world around them so having signs such as "sun", "cloud" and "moon" can help them to tell you what they are seeing and thinking about!

Here are some videos from Two Little Hands where you can learn other signs to go with "sun"!
Baby Signing Time Vol. 3 A New Day
Series 2 Vol. 5 Going Outside
Rachel and the TreeSchoolers: A Rainy Day

Books for practicing the sign for "sun":

What Do You See Outside? (Baby Signing Time!)  By Emilie De Azevedo Brown (Available from Heidi)

Itsy Bitsy Spider from Child's Play
Going Out from Child's Play

And, to wrap this up, here is a clip of my toddler using the sign "sun" while looking at pictures of the eclipse we watched earlier that day.  Without signing we probably wouldn't have known that she understood what was happening during the eclipse!
