sign: PLAN , what are you planning for the holidays?

With Thanksgiving, Chanukah, and Christmas coming up we all have lots of PLANNING to do! What special things do you do for the holidays?
asl for plan
Sign: PLAN (think - get one thing done and move on [over] to the next. PLAN
We have tons of things PLANNED: family in town, Thanksgiving dinner, Black Friday shopping, putting the Christmas lights up ... so so much!

I have to be honest, this isn't on my teach-my-daughter list. But I do use it at work with my students and it's something I sign with my high school student all the time.

I've been reading a lot to different THANKSGIVING books to Little Fingers. Some of the themes is HARVEST (obviously)... teaching a two and half year what HARVEST is isn't the easiest thing I'm doing recently, let me tell you.

Sign: HARVEST (reminds me of putting the seed down and continuing to plant. HARVEST)

How do you teach your toddlers and pre-k children these tricky words these time of year .. HARVEST!

sign for LEAF PILE. ASL learning each day with each new experience! Raking the LEAVES and signing. Why not?!

I'm sure you are familiar by now but I take each moment as a moment to teach Little Fingers (and now Tiny Fingers) sign language! Last weekend we were raking leaves. So while she was jumping in the LEAF PILE I taught her the sign for LEAF PILE! Best part now is now she teaches Teeny Fingers. 

ASL for leaf pile
The Sign for LEAF PILE is LEAF plus PILE. ASL LEAF reminds me of the LEAF falling of the tree. The sign PILE sure looks like a pile right? What ASL signs are you learning right now?

Don't forget about our other fall signs! 
We have FALL (click here) & TREE (click here)
We almost had a lost solider in our LEAF PILE! Ironically, he looks so much like Hopkins right!

sign: Fall. It's autumn, it's Fall! FALL FALL LEAVES

Sign Language Fall Fun! ASL learning every season!

Now that my daughter is old enough (2.5 years old), we read thematic books. So now we're on FALL. I taught her that Halloween is over (so she stopped asking where all the indoor/outdoor decorations went!). We've been reading every FALL themed book I can get my hands on. And yet, I realized I forgot to teach her the sign for FALL!

So here it is. ASL FALL. Sign for FALL! Hopefully I'll have a new post with her signing it :) She's picking up new signs daily and teaching her sister (8 months)! Super fun sign language times over here!
