Introducing... Rachel and the TreeSchoolers!

The people who created Signing Time have put together a preschool DVD - which includes a bit of sign language.  If you want to do a bit of preschool homeschool this may turn out to be a great place to start!

So, here is a first look at Rachel and the TreeSchoolers!

The theme song is good... 

There is also a video of one of a new rendition of Itsy Bitsy Spider.

Our DVD isn't here yet... but I'll let you know what the kids think of it, and the related activities, after it arrives!
