What's in Store?
Family! Family are the most important people in our lives, right!? We've gotta know the signs to go along with them.
Look! Those are my cute kids. Thought I'd share a picture to get you in the family mood. Especially if they're driving you up the wall! What!? They never do that, right? Never.
Family signs are great fun for kids to learn. Well, I think all signs are fun for kids to learn, but especially family because you can use them right away.
This would be a great time to practice fingerspelling as well!
Watch the video and then we can talk some more!

Okay, so how did you do? Make sure your hands are in the right gender area.
Who better to help than Uncle Jessie? Thanks Uncle Jessie!
Can you sign his name?
You would sign UNCLE + Jessie -- now the S's you would slide your hand over to the right to show two of them.
See how this is good to practice your fingerspelling? Try to sign everyone's name in your family.
Well... unless you have a ginormous family. Then stick to the key ones.
Maybe your favorite uncle, aunt, boy cousin, girl cousin. Don't have much of a family? Then pick your favorite family from a show or book and use their names. Or make them up.
