Sign of the Week: GAME

This week's sign from the Signing Time Blog is... GAME!
(from Baby Signing Time DVD Vol 4: Let's Be Friends)  For a 1 min preview of the DVD,click here.

I also have a bunch of previous Signs of the Week in a photo album (viewable on my Little Sign of Mine Facebook page even if you don't have a Facebook account).

1) How to sign GAME:
GAME: Make two fists with your thumbs up and knock your knuckles together two times.

2) Watch Rachel sign GAME & print the flashcard on the Signing Time Blog here.
And watch Ellie sign it here!  (2 1/2 yrs)  (first one is an outtake) :)

3) Signing Activities: 

*Infants - Play interactive games such as Peek-a-boo or pat-a-cake.
*Toddler - Click here for a coloring page from Deaf Ed Hub.

Games are great for also teaching our little ones concepts and skills.  Try including signs to teach social skills such as SHARE, YOUR TURN, and MY TURN, along with signs to reinforce manners, like PLEASE and THANK YOU.

Here is a collection of Ellie's and my favorite games:

1. Pengoloo  |  2. Twister  | 3. Uno Moo  | 4. The Enchanted Cupcake Party Game  |   5. Memory  |  6. Zingo

4) Today's Challenge: Play a game with your little one today!  Sign GAME before and after playing. (Want to play a GAME? ... Did you have fun playing our GAME?)

Happy signing!
