Want Professionally Printed Flash Cards?

The Flash Cards help you extend your baby’s vocabulary. Use the flash cards to teach words that you don’t encounter in every day life, such as giraffe and elephant. And use the flash cards to help baby generalize, so they learn that the word dog applies to many different dogs, and not just their pet.

    I would love to download all of the pdfs. Is there any way to do this without clicking on each one?

  2. Amber

    I want to download every single flash card from your website. Is there a way to put them into a zipped file? It is very time consuming to download them one by one. Thank you.

    ADMIN,
    Hi Amber,
    We currently don’t have a zip file mainly because every parent wishes to personalize their curriculum to include only the signs that are relevant. One nice time savings option is the 52 card baby sign language flashcard set available at our baby sign language store

    We also have a neat garden baby sign language collection available here.

    Hello,

    I bought the standard kit recently but realized that there were several key words missing from the flash cards.
    I was wondering if it was possible to purchase a bigger set of flash cards as I think it’s very practical to learn with baby.

    ADMIN,
    Dear Celine,
    We are so glad you are enjoying your kit. Each child is different and each household prioritizes different words based on their daily interactions. Our dictionary and online flashcard collection has many free printables that you can add to your deck. Currently we do not have expanded sets. As soon as they become available we will post an announcement in our Facebook page.

    How do I pay and down load. I want to print flash cards to label items etc in my classroom asap. Leslie

    ADMIN – Hi Leslie,

    The flash cards are free for you to download, print, and use in your classroom. Just select the word you want, and click the PDF icon to download.

    I love the simplicity of the pictures you use of babies doing the signs!!!
    Super cute!
    Sheree – author of ‘The Pigs Got Out’ – read a story with sign language!

  6. Cortney

    My newborn has auditory atresia and may be partially or completely deaf. He is only one month old now but we have two daughters ages 2 and 3. I want them to know sign for him and I also want to get started. We will be using ASL. Is this where we start? Or do I need to start somewhere else? I have not been told yet what resources we should use but I’m eager to start!

    ADMIN – Hi Cortney,

    This is a great place to teach your baby and your older daughters ASL.

  7. Duaa from Kuwait

    Hello, This has been a GREAT source for me. You should know that in our country (Kuwait) most mothers when expecting don’t bother to research and read. They learn from their mothers and women around them or their doctors for the more complicated stuff. However, I love researching and reading and i am very opinionated when it comes to my baby and how to handle and raise him. I was fascinated by BSL. what a great way to communicate with my little man! this concept DOES NOT exist here and I bet I am the only and first Kuwaiti trying this method. when my baby and I succeed in BSL, I surely am going to spread the knowledge. I’m trying to keep a low profile now though and not talk about it yet. Don’t need the negative feedback or the unsupportive comments since its new people wouldn’t understand or accept it. But when we succeed I’m sure they’ll be interested. However because of that, it limits my signing to my baby around other people and we are a very social community. I’ve been signing for my baby the words “more” , “all done” and a little of “milk” in arabic and english since he was 6.5 months. in a week, he’ll be 8 months and still didn’t get a sign :( is it too early to see results? Does it work with only a couple of words? or should I increase to 5 or 6 words?

    Thanks, this site has been a great help.

    ADMIN – Hi Duaa,

    Great to hear you are signing in Kuwait. We love hearing from people from different countries and how they are adapting the concept for their local language and culture.

    Starting with a few common words that are highly motivated like more, all done, and milk is perfect. It is common to not get a sign back after just 6 weeks when you start that young. Each child will start when they are ready, but to give you a timeline I would definitely expect some return signs by 9 months. So stick with it, you are on the right track.

    Having just found out that my 2 year old son lost his hearing due to a vaccine reaction, This is a great way to start teaching him how to communicate. I would like to thank you for providing the free printable downloads for those who cannot afford the extra expense of purchasing the set! You’re Awesome!

  9. Tommie

    Wonderful site! Quick question. Do you allow to use your printables (flash cards) in classrooms? Thanks!

    ADMIN – Hi Tommie,

    Yes, absolutely feel free to use them in the class room.

  10. victoria bryant

  11. Val

    I found my way here from your class action rebates website, and I’m really excited! My baby just turned one and I think he’s itching to communicate with us.

    Thanks for two helpful websites!

  12. AnnMarie

    I work with children and they love these flash cards.

  13. DORA MEZA

    I’m a kindergarten teacher. I have one firl student that can’t talk or hear, and I just visited her therapist and saw how they review flash cards of numbers. I just ordered two kits. One to donate to them, and one for use in my school.

  14. alexis

    SO GLAD I FOUND THESE, my almost 2 year old is non-verbal and i have decided to teach him to sign, while trying to get him to speak. Thanks :)

  15. Charlene

    Thank you for the resources, I am going to be a stay at home granny for my grandson which is now only 7 weeks, but I am planning ahead to teach him all the things that my children did not get the opportunity to learn because i have always worked. This is great, THANKS

    ADMIN – Hi Charlene,

    Awesome! I love hearing from people like you, it is what inspired us to create the site and what makes us look forward to getting to work every day. Please keep us posted on his progress.

  16. carmen olivas

    I’m a homestay mother and my little boy is two-and-a-half and does not speak. I use sign language with him because his Therapist uses sign language and this is really helpful. Now I can understand and communicate with my son, and it is helping his talking. It is a big relief .. thanks.

  17. Vanessa

    This is such a great source!… I have been trying to get different words in sign for my daughter who has Cerebral Palsy.. I get so many mixed messages and different websites that require you buy a package of learning material that maybe we wont need in about a year once we have learned what we need to learn. I can now finally teach my daughter how to use the potty!

  18. Sarita

    My son is 5months old. We speak mostly English in our home. I want him to learn Spanish as well as sign language. When I sign to him, should I say the word in English and then in Spanish? or will this confuse him. Is he too young to start using the flash cards?

    ADMIN – Hi Sarita,

    Many bilingual families use Baby Sign Language as the bridge between two language. I would just say the word in one language and make the accompanying sign. For example, saying agua, and making the water sign. Other times you would say the english water and make the water sign. With the common sign and the common context, your child will learn that agua and water have the same meaning.

  19. Angela

    How do you sign Barney? I have a little girl that likes Barney.

    ADMIN – Hi Angela,

    Names like Barney, are usually finger-signed (i.e. spelled out). But, we would improvise and use the sign for dinosaur (or purple dinosaur if they are more advanced) to keep things simple.

  20. Chelley Correa

    I truly appreciate the fact you make your materials available for us to use however I feel compelled to provide feedback about something. The photos used on your flashcards do not depict a variety of cultures. In today’s programs we want to connect with a wide cross culture of people and it’s important to use multi-cultural materials. I hope to see a cross section of multi cultural representation in your materials soon. Thanks,
    Chelley Correa

    ADMIN – Hi Chelley,

    Thanks for you feedback. We would like to make the materials as accessible as possible to anyone that is interested in learning Baby Sign Language. As part of that mission, we would like to depict many different cultures. For example in our books you will see a variety of races, ages, and genders represented in the diagrams.

    The downloadable flash cards are not very diverse. We would like to show more diversity in the flash cards as you suggest. One challenge is that we use a lot of stock photography, and stock photography is not particularly diverse. If you or anyone else has more diverse high quality imagery we can use, it would be greatly appreciated.

  21. RAVEN

    My son turned seven months yesterday. What is the best way to teach him to sign. I have been signing milk and all done to him. What is the best way to teach the signs.

    ADMIN – Hi Raven,

    Check out our baby sign language basics section for lots of great information on getting started. But, in a nutshell, you are going to pick a handful of basic signs and give him lots of exposure to these signs in context.

  22. MaiNhia

    I work with a very diverse population and am introducing many new moms to baby sign language. I found these flash cards to be help but it did amaze me that all the photos of people are of only one race ex. (flash cards of; girl, again, happy, grandmother, grandfather, daddy, happy, laugh, sad, mommy, kiss, quiet, excited. I think it would be even more beneficial if they were more reflective of the all the different people that may be using them.

    ADMIN – Hi MaiNhia,

    We always welcoming submissions from our community. If you have a photo of little ones signing that will best represent your working group please send it our way and we will incorporate it in the flashcards. In the next few months we will be adding additional flashcards with representation for several cultural groups. We are glad you are here and appreciate your feedback and engagement.

  23. Chelsea

    This is such a great resource! I have been looking for something like this for a long time, and just stumbled upon it today! Thank you for providing this :)

  24. Marilu

    Dear Baby Sign Language,

    I wanted to thank you for the flash card free download. I am a single mom and every little bit helps. Normally cards like this are priced $10 or $20. Your free baby sign language cards have been very useful as I bond with my baby girl.

    Thank you!

  25. Spencer

    We love your site! We can’t wait to start signing with our baby.

    I would love to have all the flash cards, and would love to have a way to get them all without downloading them individually. THANKS!

  26. Selina

    These are great. I love the great pictures. I printed these out and have them up in the nursery.
