Heaven's Garden Children's Place

Kindersigns by Ms. Marianne

 

 6 months to 3 years 

Sign language curriculum for parents with hearing children

 

Through songs, toys, and loving playtime between you and your child,  I will show you more than 50 signs your child can use to communicate with you. Using research-proven methods shown to speed language development in hearing children, you'll see how sign language can ease frustration and enhance long-term learning abilities for your child.

Songs and fingerplays. Already accustomed to fingerplays and rhyme-songs—such as "This Little Piggy"—you'll easily substitute American Sign Language (ASL) signs in familiar songs, improving your child's language skills, fine motor skills, and strengthen fingers for zipping zippers and using scissors.

Learn when you play. You'll never have to memorize a list of signs. This curriculum gives you the ASL signs that are most useful to you, and most interesting to your child. So playtime and everyday items around the house—ball, bubbles, mom and dad—become the objects of learning in the classroom, and sign language becomes a natural, happy part of your child's day.

Research supports that "Hearing children"  who know signs, learn language almost twice as fast. As early as 11-14 months old, hearing children exposed to sign language put little sentences together faster than non-signing children, who do not begin to combine words into short sentences, such as "Da-da car" until the average age of 20 months.

Family involvement in your child's learning is a fundamental cornerstone of my philosophy because I believe the parent is the child's most important teacher and the home is the most important place for a child's learning to take root and grow. After all, there's no better way to nurture your child's development and you'll love doing it together every day!
