Are you looking for a fun way to reinforce your children’s learning? Or maybe you’re wanting something to change up your homeschool, during the summer break? Sign Language Flash Cards, by Carson-Deliosa Publications might be just the ticket for your family!
Sign Language Flash Cards In Your Homeschool
The Sign Language Flash Cards from Carson Dellosa include 105 colorfully illustrated cards that teach the signs for numbers, and letters plus some very basic common words. Your children can learn these signs and reinforce their learning at the same time!
Sign Language Flash Cards include the ASL signs for:
1. The 26 letters of the alphabet
2. Numbers 1 to 20
3. Signs for many common words
These flash cards can be used in many different ways, from toddler communication to reinforcing manners!
There flash cards include simple signs, such as “eat” and “drink”, which you could teach to your baby or toddler. This can help them to express their basic needs.
When your child learns to signs for the numbers, say 1-5, for example, they are practicing number concepts. Forming the numbers with their fingers can help to reinforce their understanding.
LEARNING ABOUT FEELINGS
There are sign cards for feelings, such as ‘happy”, “sad”, or “scared”. These are fun for kids as they learn about their feelings. Notice how the signs fit the feelings so well.
The signs for please and thank you can help reinforce manners in your kids in a fun, new way.
Whatever you do with Sign Language Flash Cards, your kids will be improving their small muscle coordination. As they use their fingers to make the signs, they could be actually be preparing themselves for learning to write! This can be helpful especially for kids who shy away from crafts activities and need ways to improve their hand skills.
If you are looking for a fun way to change up your homeschool with something different, my family recommends Sign Language Flash cards by Carson-Deliosa Publishing.
