Sing, Sign, and Grow! is a class for children 18-36 months and their caregivers. Through songs, games, and stories, children will learn real American Sign Language (ASL) signs that can help them communicate with caregivers and engage with the world around them. Being able to communicate before being able to speak can drastically reduce the frustration of the "terrible twos." Signing with young children facilitates the development of linguistic, cognitive, and social-emotional skills all while exposing them to a hands on second language. The 8 weeks will cover foods, animals, daily routines, and things that go. There is a $10 materials fee due to the instructor at the first class date.
