Do you sign with your LO during story time when you get to a word in the book that you've been signing?

Do you look for books that repeat or feature words that you've been signing?

Yesterday was the first day that Kiki actually looked at the pictures instead of trying to eat the book right away. It was a board book about cats and had a picture of one that looks like my grandmother's two orange cats, and she really liked looking at it. So I signed Cat to her while she turned the pages back and forth.

I have some signing books that I can't wait to read to her, but they are paperback books and I don't want her to eat them lol.

Until recently, Jonah has been pretty good about sitting and listening to the books that I read. He's found his independent side though, and wants to grab at them and play with (rip) the pages. So I don't always finish the stories that we start unless it's a board book.

I want him to learn the sign for "eat" so this week from the library, I got a book called "Eats" It has super bright pictures that have a lot of contrast so it keeps his attention, and it is just about what eats what (worm eats apple, squirrel eats acorn etc.) I also got The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which is a book that he is familiar with but I never put any signs with it until this week.

I have always used the sign for "all done" at the end of a story, and I'm thinking of introducing "book" soon. Now that he doesn't need/want to be held all the time, I am finding lots of signs to add that I couldn't do before because my hands were full!

When I was working at the preschool, we had books of children's rhymes like Baa Baa Black Sheep and Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, that had pictures of the signs to go with them. I can't find them now. It's really hard to do them while holding the book, so I usually only selected a couple of words that were repeated throughout the book..
