Play Group: Christmas Pics

Since Christmas is just a week away we focused on a couple of well known Christmas Carols - Silent Night and Away in A Manger.  We used the DVD We Sign Christmas to help with learning the songs and ASL signs.
We also had the chance to make a hand print Christmas Card!

Here is a youtube clip of Silent Night from We Sign:

Merry Christmas!

Another Class Graduates!

Today we had another Baby Signing Time class graduate! 
I love that the last lesson includes the song "In the Sky" so we get to play with balloons and bubbles.  The smiles and laughs they create are a great reward for us all.
Each time we have a trial lesson and form a new class the first thought is "Wow, these babies are so small and so quiet!" but by the time they finish the entire Baby Signing TIme course the quiet babies have turned into crawling, walking, babbling and signing toddlers!
If you have any questions I can be reached at heidi@signingtimeacademy.com

Please e-mail me if you live in Japan but are not in a location where classes are offered. I can help you get started with Baby Signing Time and/or Signing Time.

日本に住んでいて、近くに手話のクラスがない場合などは、メールをくだされば、質問に答えたり、皆さんが Baby Signing Time や Signing Time を始めるのをお手伝いできると思います。
