We are learning some songs using Makaton.
Makaton can help people who have limited speech or whose speech is unclear and can help all children communicate.
It is used to support spoken language. The signs are used alongside speech in the same order as the spoken word.
We are singing and signing “Five little ducks “.
We are also learning to sign our names during “Hello everyone”.
“I can sign my name” “it’s fun to sign”
We are having fun learning to sign!
Some of today’s signs I have touched on before but its always good to recap and see if you can remember them. 🙂
Today’s signs are focus on manners.
Adding some facial expressions when you are signing can help to convey your message.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
As we get closer to more children returning to Cart Mill, let’s practice some signs focused around playtime:
I hope you guys are having some fun with these signs.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all go to the zoo! Hopefully, we can soon but here are some zoo animal signs to practice before seeing the animals again.
A good way to remember and practise your signing is to incorporate them into songs and stories. Can you think of any songs with these animals or have any favourite storybooks where these animals pop up?
