Introducing new words/signs
 
How do you do it?

Re: Introducing new words/signs
 
I choose a word I would like Caoimhe to know the word for (or one that she is interested in), point to it or show her what it means, then say the word & sign it.

For example, point to a ball, say "would you like the BALL?" and sign it. Pick it up and say "Here's your BALL!", then hand it to baby and sign it.

If I can make a game of it, I'll do that too. We'll roll the ball back and forth to each other, and I will sign as I talk to her about what we're playing.

I do the same. I kind of highlight the word in an activity, so that he really focuses on it and understands what it is that I'm telling him

I pick a common word that he understands that we use all the time and will sign it. Each time i use the word i sign and i take his hands and sign it with them. And i keep doing it until he tries to sign it himself.
