Overview

The perfect book to introduce sign language to hearing children

Written for teachers of hearing children from birth to age six, "Simple Signing" is the perfect introduction to teaching young children through sign. There are chapters for infants, toddlers, and preschool children, with age-appropriate signs. The chapter written for teachers of infants focuses on using beginning signs as a bridge to communicating with words, while the toddler chapter focuses on signing to promote expression, enrich vocabulary, and teach social skills. The preschool chapter places an emphasis on using signs to enhance emergent literacy skills.

Each sign is illustrated with a caption and one or more photos of a young child or adult demonstrating the sign, making them easy to understand and execute. Instructions for putting signs together into simple sentences are also included. In addition to the conventional index, there is also a pictorial index of signs to help you find what you need quickly and easily. "Simple Signing" shows teachers just how easy and valuable it can be to incorporate sign language into daily activities.

Chapters Include:
Using Sign Language to Manage the Classroom and Teach Social Skills
Sign Language for Babies
Sign Language for Toddlers
Sign Language for Preschoolers
Sign Language for an Inclusive Classroom
