Signing Children’s Books: Beach Day!

By John Miller
Monday, July 1, 2019

This article is part of our “Signing Children’s Books” series, which highlights children’s books and pairs them with pre-built Signing Savvy word lists to help you get started with learning and signing the vocabulary in the book. Reading and literacy is so important. By sharing these pre-built word lists, we hope to cut down on prep time for families that are just beginning to learn ASL and hope you can find more comfort in sharing literacy with our young deaf children.

Signing Children's Books: Beach Day!

Beach Day by Patricia Larkin is just one book in the series of adventures about this fun loving alligator family. The words are pretty simple so your new young readers can handle it pretty easily. The illustrations by Scott Nash are creative and will capture the children's attention, and make them laugh. The group has a good time in anything they do, and seem to always see the silver lining in the mishaps of their adventures.

There are some good lessons to be discussed throughout the book.

Enjoy it this summer as you prepare to head to the beach with your family.

Extension Activities

There are a lot of fun, related beach activities you can do either while at the beach, to prepare before going to the beach to build excitement, or after coming back with things you may have gathered while you were there. Here are a few ideas from Pinterest:
