Baby Sign Language: ASL Signs for Farm Animals

by | Playful Signs, Themes

Old MacDonald Had a Farm….

Babies are endlessly fascinated with animals!  It’s no coincidence that so many board books feature friendly, furry critters.

A good chunk of most toddlers’ vocabulary is typically made up of animal names AND animal sounds. In fact, it’s very common for baby’s first words to be the sound an animal makes. Your little one will likely say “moo” before he says “cow” – which is adorable. :)

I encourage you to use LOTS of fun & playful animal sounds when you are reading, playing & singing with your baby. Old MacDonald is a great song to sing with animal sounds, and today you’ll learn the signs to go right along with it…

Hi, I’m Lane. I’m so glad you’re here!

As a new mom, I wanted to use sign language with my baby, but I wasn’t sure where to start.

After a trip to my local library and lots of trial and error, I figured it out—and I was honestly blown away by how much closer I felt to my daughter!

I decided every parent should be able to experience that deeper connection with their little one. So, I added American Sign Language training to my child development background, and I created my award-winning Tiny Signs program.

I’ve helped tens of thousands of families communicate through basic sign language, and I’d love to help you, too.
