The kindergarten sign language program supports the development of reading, writing and listening skills in an engaging and non-traditional manner. This exceptional educational experience is appropriately targeted for young children since they easily take to new language skills. Many children are visual and kinesthetic learners and need the additional reinforcement of a voice in conjunction with the hand motions to solidify concepts. Learning sign language helps with letter recognition, phonemic segmentation and awareness; this element adds fun, which makes learning easier. Students learn songs and games and even integrate their newfound skills by performing for parents and the community.
