Do you use any sign language teaching tools, like videos or concept cards? How did you choose which ones to use if you do?

Nope, my only 'tool' is my own ASL class and instructor (and the internet to look up signs I don't know, lol). Other than that, we're 'tool free' here

I want to start looking into it. One of my friends said she has some great books. I need to get the titles from her.

I have been using a lot of different tools. I have used baby einstein to start with and now we are going to a class once a week to learn signs that I can work with her at home.

I've found that most of the videos and cards are more helpful for the parents than the child. I like to get the Signing Time videos from the library, but even though Jonah likes to watch them with me I'm not sensing that he is getting any signs from them. But they do give me a lot of ideas for signs that would be good to teach him, that I hadn't thought of before.

We also use the baby einstein picture cards, but they don't have anything to do with signs, they are just pictures of things, and he likes to look at the pictures so I use his attention to them to show him some signs while he's looking.
