All Of Our Signs


The rain kept us inside for most of the day again. So between art projects, I decided to quiz the kids on what signs they knew. I had a printout of all the signs they've seen in the "Signing Time" videos (from where they have learned most of their signs), and ran down the list. I was shocked by how many they knew. This is probably the last time I'll make a list, as for many of these signs they have a verbal word to go with them. And they are also getting more complex in their usage. Today when Arthur was told Erin was going to take a shower, he signed "Rain Bath." He's a smart kid.

So after the quiz, I tallied up the words. They know well over 150 signs! Here is the list:
eat, milk, water, ball, more, bird, dog, cat, fish, car, airplane, shoes, flower, baby, sleep, train, doll, bear, please, share, book, socks, drink, dirty, potty, bath, hurt, sorry, stop, go, wait, thank you, apple, cereal, banana, bread, cheese, crackers, ice cream, help, hot, cold, wet, sun, moon, stars, happy, laugh, sad, cry, girl, home, tree, wind, grass, rain, snow, hat, surprised, silly, scared, slick, red, orange, grapes, peach, pear, strawberry, chicken, goat, mouse, cow, donkey, pig, cat, goat, fish, bird, squirrel, duck, rabbit, snail, frog, snake, lizard, bear, bug, spider, mosquito, butterfly, rhinoceros, seal, panda, hippopotamus, zebra, tiger, lion, shark, octopus, crab, lobster, shrimp, monkey, kangaroo, camel, gorilla, crocodile, elephant, penguin, giraffe, awake, brush, comb, shirt, pants, sweater, blocks, build, puzzle, fun, clean, bed, light, picnic, swing, slide, sand, helicopter, bus, boat, motorcycle, stamp, library, restaurant, firefighter, police officer, doctor, grow, cook, kitchen, fork, napkin, knife, spoon, bowl, sandwich, popcorn, peas, tomato, draw, quiet, hat, all done, tired, more, fan, and diaper change.
