My Smart Hands™ Level III

Children do NOT need to have taken Levels 1 and 2 to join this class; however, children who have gone through the first two Levels will be slightly ahead of children who haven’t taken them. These classes run in 8-week sessions. You will learn over 100 signs, as well as sing songs and read books not learned in Level 1 or 2. Classes are 30-45 minutes in length. Weekly themes covered in class include life together, shapes, questions, days of the week, clothes, community helpers, places we go, and sports.

Parent Workshops
These workshops are geared towards busy parents who are unable to take a full 8 week class. Learn how to enrich your child’s language development by increasing vocabulary and building self-confidence through the use of American Sign Language (ASL). This workshop is an introduction to the benefits of using ASL with your child. Children are not only auditory learners they also learn visually and kinesthetically (touch and experience). Using sign language with your child encompasses all learning styles. Your child will hear you when you say the word, he/she will see you make the sign and will also experience/feel the word as he/she learns to sign. This workshop is designed for the busy parent; you will learn recommended first signs and easy techniques for successfully integrating signs into everyday life. Over 100 signs will be introduced. Fee includes a full color MSH™ curriculum book.

Daycare/Preschool Classes
These 30-minute classes are designed to be taught to a group of children in a group setting with the daycare provider(s)/teacher(s) present.  Class lengths and topics can be customized to the needs of each facility, whether in-home or center. 

Educator Workshops
These workshops are designed to show child care providers, educators, and homeschooling parents how to use ASL with the children in their care.  Workshop content and length are customized to the needs of each facility and staff.  Participants will learn hundreds of signs along with simple, memorable ways to integrate sign language into each day.  For homeschooling families, workshops can also be taught to both the parents and children at the same time (for this option, adjusted Level 1 pricing would apply).  ASL is a valuable educational tool that can enhance lessons for children of any age.  Ask me how!

Cost: $100 per hour (two-hour minimum), plus manual fees

Birthday Party Entertainment
