Wednesdays 11 am @ Little Beats!
6 week session
(5/9, 5/16, 5/23, 5/30, 6/6, 6/13)
Come play, sing, read and learn how to communicate with your little one with a Boston-area child development and sign language expert! Baby sign language reduces frustration, accelerates verbal development and strengthens cognitive skills. Great for your non-mobile or crawling/cruising infant who is ready to communicate. Take a class with My Smart Hands, have some fun and learn how to sign with your child!
My Smart Hands™ Level I
Level I classes run in 6 or 8 week sessions. 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 non-mobile or crawling/cruising 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!
