One of our favorite preschool learning resources! Signing Time DVDs

A Favorite Preschool Learning Resource

I’ve mentioned it a few times here, but one of our favorite preschool resources are the Signing Time DVDs.

One of our favorite preschool learning resources! Signing Time DVDs

Not only were these essential when my son (who has multiple special needs) was expanding his sign vocabulary to be able to communicate with others, but these DVDs also incorporate early literacy skills through auditory, visual, and tactile aspects. Both of my children learned sight words earlypartly due to these episodes. Signing also provided my typical-developing daughter ways to communicate her wants and needs before she began talking. (And now she can interpret what her brother is saying when needed!)

Even after years of watching these shows, my husband and I still walk around the house singing these songs. They’re actually good “kid music.” The songs vary in sound, are fun to listen to, and allow practice with signing and memorization.

Today and tomorrow only (Tuesday, November 25th and Wednesday, November 26th): Signing Time is hosting a huge $10 DVD sale! Each DVD is only $10 week, which is half off the regular sale price!

Signing Time Sale!

One of our family’s favorite resources is Signing Time.

I fell in love with Signing Time as a teacher and before I had kids of my own. I learned sign when I was in elementary school, learned more in college, then God showed me He was preparing me to have a child who needs to use sign as his main mode of expressive communication. (How amazing is that?!)

Signing Time has been a beautiful resource for our family. Combined with us reading every single day, I’m positive that Signing Time’s incorporation of early literacy skills helped my son with special needs memorize many sight words for the first time! Plus, we’ve seen massive benefits of having our son sign and (try to) say and see the words he wants to express. (This is still the case even though he’s signing in questions now!) Signing Time combines all of these tactics along with beautiful and fun songs focused on educational themes.

Though our son with special needs uses sign the most, our neuro-typical daughter also uses sign! She learned to sign before she could talk, which boosted her ability to communicate. She still uses sign now with her brother and in the occasional time we can’t understand what she’s saying. I’m a huge advocate of any young child learning sign.
