On the menu this week . . . mastering the alphabet in sign language. It’s not necessarily about being understood, but trying to understand. EduMat scores again . . . this time with their “Let’s Practice Signing” laminated placemats. These placemats are great for kids, but not just for little hands. Make your own and laminate them, or pick up a few placemats ready-made by EduMat and set the table. Look for kid-friendly placemats at most school supply outlets.
