Connect and Communicate…Start Signing today!
Before they can talk, babies communicate through facial expressions, body language, and gestures. Sign Language taps into babies’ natural ability to communicate with their bodies. When signs and words are used together, auditory learners hear the word, visual learners see the sign and kinesthetic learners can use their hands to make the sign. Signing creates the perfect storm that can trigger a surge in language learning and cognitive development. This workshop will give you the tools necessary to immediately implement American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary into your early childhood setting. Participants will learn tips for using sign language and signs related to popular themes such as pets, colours, family and the alphabet. Instruction will be delivered through hands on practice using a variety of popular nursery rhymes, songs, baby bounces and fingerplays all using ASL!
