手話で遊ぼう!Play Group - Silly Pizza!

Favorite Foods - Silly Pizza Song
What better way to learn a lot of food signs at one time than with a fun song.  Ok, make that 2 fun songs and you learn twice the signs!
Did you know there are actually 2 Silly Pizza Songs in Signing Time videos?  The first one is in Signing Time Series 1 DVD 3 Everyday Signs and the 2nd is in Series 1 DVD 12 Time To Eat.  We had a lot of fun learning both songs and trying to sing and sign along!

If you want to know even more food signs take a look at an ASL online dictionary such as Signing Savvy or ask your teacher at the next Baby Signing Time Class
At home we use the book Meal Time by Anthony Lewis from the Sign About series which includes some additional food and meal time signs.

Here is a clip of Rachel, Hopkins and a special guest singing and signing the Silly Pizza Song live!

If you want to buy the CD or DVD with the Silly Pizza Song please let me know and I can add it to the next order!  Or, if you want to watch it right away you can purchase it through the Signing Time On Demand Digital Player.
