Baby Sign Language Basics and Baby First Words – The Best Baby Signs, Songs and Flashcards

This video includes sign language basics and baby first words, songs, and flashcards. It’s full of useful baby signs and gestures that help develop language. The video can be watched by babies, babies and adults or even just adults to learn the sign language to practice with their baby. The video can also be helpful for toddlers in practicing their speech and language.

Signs this video covers includes ones that I found most useless for my baby! Sign language includes: Milk, more, eat, all done, mama, dada, no, yes, diaper change, open, help, again. This is a full episode of signs, songs, flash cards, and more!

For part of the video, I worked with the brilliant speech language pathologists (speech therapists) at Chatterbox NYC. I am not a speech therapist myself. I am a music teacher with a masters in music education.
I focus a lot in the video on showing gestures. Gestures are incredibly important building blocks for language development. You may feel like you just want to focus on words, but gestures and imitation are very important in learning speech!

For the filling in the blanks- if you’re toddler can’t say “go” you can throw the ball or make the toy work, or do whatever they want you do do, when they look at you- or when they make any sound. It shows them the power of their voice. If you hold a toy that lights up away from them, and then you say, “Ready, set…” and then they make any sound, press the button to make it light up. They don’t have to get it right. Just show them that making sounds and using their voice gets them what they want. If they can’t make a sound, do it when they look at you.

A helpful way to teach the sign for “more” is to give them a little of their favorite food. When they are done the few pieces, say, “Do you want MORE” and do the sign for “more.” Then give them a little more of the food. Repeat this process many times. You can gently use hand over hand to help them do the sign for “more” before you give them the food as well.
Songs are wonderful for teaching gestures, imitation and language. Then end of the video shows many songs that are great for practicing gestures.

I do not use background music because, although it would be more entertaining, I believe it’s important for babies and toddlers to just hear the voice alone.

I was a teacher in the Philadelphia Public School System for over 20 years. I love teaching preschoolers and watching them progress from wide eyed blank slates to being able to read and write. The pride they enjoy from advancing their abilities and seeing their imagination grow is the greatest reward a teacher can receive.
