Teach your toddler the microphone sign in context: when someone is using a microphone on TV, in a cartoon, or in their picture book. You can also teach the sign when someone in the family is using a microphone during a big party.
Teach your toddler this sign in conjunction with other flash cards pertaining to group gatherings, parties, and so on. Practical signs come in handy during large gatherings when it would be pointless to talk due to the loud environment, wherein the noise would drown out whatever you say.
