SIGNING SAFARI: BEGINNER SIGNS & ALPHABET cover image
Kids paid attention to the rhyming and watched the people in the video making the signs. They were prompted to say the words they knew. Most of the children loved the video and called out various names of things they saw. They moved along to the music, clapping hands and swaying. They responded to their teacher as she reinforced the images and sounds onscreen. Most kids tried to sign along with the show. When the video shows the sign for "eat," the teacher called out "eat." in English and Spanish and replicated the actions onscreen. The children replicated as well. Pace is lively for a first time viewing. However, to master the signs one would have to watch each segment repeatedly and practice. The entire video can be viewed in one showing. However, in order to master each sign, the segments can be viewed separately. In addition, the alphabet can be viewed on its own. Excellent.
Very nice with catchy rhymes. Presentation is very professional. Content is geared at pre-verbal children. Engaging and entertaining for both children and adults. Appropriately paced, teaches life skills of signing as a way to communicate feelings. It may stimulate language development and improve manual dexterity and coordination. It is filled with excellent demonstrations of sign language by both kids and adults. Great rhythms, use of children's voices. Each sign is taught by first demonstrating it by an adult or child as a close up. After demonstration, there is a montage presenting situations where signing could be used, followed by a repeat of the original demonstration. Very suitable for babies 6 months of age up to first graders. The visuals and rhymes are arresting even without understanding what sign language is all about. In truth the video does not refer to the hearing impaired at all, the signs are simply presented as another form of body language. All races and ages of children and adults are represented, including a Downs Syndrome child. It does make one want to learn more about signing and its uses.
Introduces families to 15 of the most common signs used with young children. Children will enjoy learning ASL signs through original rhymes, live child models and playful puppets. Signs like, I Love You, hurt and pacifier are featured.
