Signing with baby
Ever been so frustrated trying to get your point across with someone that you end up screaming? Imagine what it’s like when your verbal skills are limited to ‘mama’ and ‘dada’ or just babbling. Studies suggest babies who are taught to communicate through sign language are happier, throw fewer tantrums and may even have accelerated speech development. If you don’t have access to signing classes, and you’re not ready to commit to books and videos, you can rent download software for $3 a week at Kiddie Signs.com.
This web site also offers free sign language games teaching kids the alphabet, shapes and colours in American Sign Language using multicultural animation. Kiddie Signs is part of KiddieGames.com a fantastic hub of interactive games to play at the computer with your little one while she’s cuddled on your lap. Just watch what happens when she bashes the keyboard and one of the cartoon kids talks back!
