Sign Language Classes for Babies, Children , Parents, Caregivers, and Educators

Join a sign langauge class that just won the Parent Tested Parent Approved Award! My Smart Hands™ Level I These classes run in either 4, 8 or 10 week sessions. The 4-week sessions are run in two parts A and B. In our classes you will learn over 100 signs to use with your child. Classes are 45 minutes in length and are created for parents/caregivers and babies. In a playful, educational and language-rich environment, caregivers and children will build their American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary through instruction, interactive games and songs. You will learn recommended first signs; we will discuss the benefits of using ASL with infants and demonstrate easy techniques for successfully integrating signs into everyday life. Some of the ASL vocabulary covered for this age group includes: everyday words, family, food, animals, emotions, opposites, bed time and play signs. All of our classes include a full color MSH™ curriculum book with a CD of the songs we teach. The books have pictures of the signs learned along with descriptions for easy reference long after the class is over! Sign and Sing Classes Young children are active, creative and spontaneous. They love to sing, listen to music and dance to different songs that have various rhythms and beats. For ages, children have loved to put actions to songs such as ‘The Itsy Bitsy Spider’ and ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. In the ‘Sing & Sign’ class we teach the ASL signs that go along with traditional children’s songs as well as learn new modern songs. We will learn how to sign the key words in each song, play games, read books and review signs. But more importantly, we will laugh and have FUN!
