Baby Sign Language:

This month’s baby sign language is “Cat and Dog”.  To sign “dog”, pat your outstretched hand with fingers together on the side of your hip.  To sign “cat”, with both hands pinch your thumb and index finger together by the side of each cheek while keeping your remaining fingers straight out.  As you pinch your fingers together, take them from each side of your face outward.



This month, your child will recognize shapes, primary and secondary colors, and recognize common vacation destinations.



This month, your child will graph ocean animals, and talk about water and sun safety.



This month, your child will participate in nature activities along with sound experiments and make predictions.
