Sign with Your Baby
Learn how to reduce frustration and help give your pre-verbal baby/child a means of self expression before he/she speaks. Research suggests that signing helps to enhance early literacy skills as well as accelerates spoken language too.
Some other benefits of signing with your baby are; Deepens bonding, allows infants to communicate specific thoughts, gives a window into baby’s mind and personality and can be more interest in books.
We begin class with instruction and then Sheryl brings out a bag filled with props, toys, puppets, etc. and signs with the babies. Then the moms get a turn learning signs and get handouts. It is fun for the moms and it is a feast for the eyes for the babies. The babies usually leave ready for a nap after all of that learning and stimulation. Some parents even report longer naps after class! We will learn and use several signs and watch our babies enjoy grasping this new language.
This class is appropriate for babies and young children 2-months or older and pre-verbal.
