This evening my three year old shared that her letter of the day at preschool was “P.” We spontaneously started naming words that start with that letter, giving hints by signing the word and getting others to name the word. It was quite interesting to see how many signs the girls remembered, despite their recent lack of interest in signing. We made quite a large list of words and signs. The game then branched off into “who knows the sign for….” during clean up time.
Here are some of the words we came up with signs for during our game (click them to see if you know the sign):
You could do this game for any letter of the alphabet. I think we will remember to do it the next time my preschooler tells me the letter of the day.
