One way to teach signs to your baby is with the help of baby sign language cards. If you are a new parent, you have to realize the importance of your interaction with your baby. You can download a book, learn signs, practice them, and then teach them to your baby. However, the experience of learning the signs together with your baby is completely different.
It is also extremely effective. It is quite an interactive experience for the baby when you use baby sign language cards to teach him/her the signs. However, you have to make use of only high quality cards. In addition to teaching your kids the signs, you can use these cards for further teaching.
For example, once your baby reaches advanced level of learning, you can teach him/her the different types of animals. You can put animals and birds in different categories to give your baby the concept of grouping different words. The baby can also learn about the world around him/her through these cards.
For example, you can teach the baby to love the pet through these cards. Use the animal card and then the card for the hug sign to teach your kid that it needs to hug (love) the pet. You can also introduce the concept of generalization here i.e. teaching your baby to love all the animals and not just your pet.
The baby sign language cards can always be handed over to other members in the family for them to know how to communicate with the baby in your absence. The visual illustrations on them are easy enough for anyone to look at them first time and understand what they mean.
