We are trying something new.....brainstorming on how to get new signs across to Wren as soon as possible! She needs these to catch up, go to school, and be Happy! She doesn't know this. She isn't really all that interested in learning them. But she is learning whether she knows it or not. Anyway we watch a sign language DVD at bedtime, and sometimes repeat it for several nights, or in the morning if they are really sleepy and don't seem to be paying much attention. So I decided this morning to make a list of all the signs we learned.....and go find real live, or physical examples of the sign. Today our list of signs were.....
park, playground, rollerskate, swing, picnic, kite, slide, climb sand, helicopter, boat, motorcycle, stamp, mail, library, bus, school, story, book, office, retaurant, firefighter, police, slow, fast, store, buy, money, work.
If anyone has other good ideas on how to get her interested, and the signs to stick.....let me know!
On our way to Dairy Queen~restaurant
I'm signing smile....she was NOT very happy and about to get herself in trouble here!
Sherman helping unwrap straws. He was my helper on this venture:)
Signing stamp and Mail here. We sent a card in an envelope, and took it to the mail box. Look at the sour look on Wrens face! She is always so huffy when I make her LOOK/listen. She was doing something else, and was NOT impressed! But she's always doing something else, so sometimes she just has to listen like it or not.
On the way to the mailbox. Wren is happy now cause she gets to carry the envelope!
On the way back we signed fast and slow, and walked sloooooow......then ran fast!
Doctors office. She's not signing here, she wants to carry the papers I have to give the receptionist.
We were lucky enough to catch the doctor on her way through, and sign doctor, and get a picture. Thanks Dr. Shelly for taking the time!
At the Grocery Store.
We had to "buy" some suckers.....and some snacks for later at the pool.
At the town pool....the water was FRIGID!!!! The big pool was even colder! Oh, and for those who asked, the tutu swimsuits are from.........Wal-mart! Ocean Pacific brand, $8.94 I believe:)
One braved the cold.
One was quite content on the edge with her cups!
Always picking or scratching something.
Oh my goodness her bottom is actually in the water!
Big brothers make the best pool floats ever:)
The breakfast crew. Sherm is usually the last one up, with Iley a close second.
