If you saw my review on Baby Signing Time, you know how much I love these videos for our kids, so I was so excited when Jane Carter from Signs of Youth contacted me. Jane teaches local ASL classes for infants, toddlers, and children as well as parents and educators. She has an exciting new program, Signing Story Times, starting at South Jefferson Library on the second Saturday of each month at 10:30am. If you have infants, she will be starting a Baby Signing Class in January. Jane brought me a copy of the Signing Time - Story Time DVD to get an idea of what these classes are going to be like.
The Signing Story Time DVD is great for kids from infants to school-aged. It not only reinforces early reading skills, but also teaches vocabulary in a fun and interactive way and helps foster a love for language and learning! My infant and toddler loved the bright colors and songs. Before each story, Rachel reviews some of the words that will be used in the story and teaches those signs. My preschooler loved learning new signs and then seeing them again in the story. My 6-year-old loved practicing his reading skills by reading along with the words on the screen and practicing the signs. The words with signs are highlighted as Rachel reads the story.
Jane is offering a copy of the Signing Story Time DVD to one lucky reader to celebrate the start of her new Signing classes at the South Jefferson Library. You can find out more about her classes on her Facebook page or at her website Signs of Youth
