Teaches a second language (American Sign Language)
Why teach your preschooler/kindergartner sign language?
Research showing that using signs with preschoolers and kindergartners aids their language and literacy development. Several studies have also shown that signing can help kindergartners, and even older children, gain bigger vocabularies, and improve their spelling and reading skills. We also know from the research on preschool and school-aged children that teaching fingerspelling is helpful for verbal children’s language and literacy skills and can help those who are struggling with spelling and reading.
