Sign All Day Long!

You can sign with your child to support early literacy, create more productive communication, and provide emotional security for your child all day long! Here’s a rhyme to sign using the signs from Nita’s Day: More Signs for Babies and Parents. Find this and other signing activities in the Nita’s Day Teacher/Librarian Guide.
