Sign 4 Little Talkers

A new approach to support communication and positive behaviour in two and three year olds

“The progress our children have made is amazing, their vocabulary and confidence has grown. They are able to express how they are feeling and use more complex words to convey their thoughts and ideas. Using signs and the dolls during the story session has also improved the children’s concentration and encouraged them to participate actively. Parents are also engaged and are spending more time reading and talking with their children.” Nursery manager

Why sign?

Young children learn best when they are actively engaged and with Sign 4 Little Talkers they are not just hearing and saying new words but doing them as well!

The signed vocabulary for communication will support your children to talk about what happens in their lives and to understand and use words such as who, what, why and where.

The signed vocabulary for feelings will support your children to express the many emotions they experience each day, with words such as happy, sad, frustrated, worried and excited.

The signed vocabulary for behaviour will support practitioners, parents and carers to praise their children’s positive behaviour and to promote good manners, sharing and turn taking. Signed words include: please, thank you, calm down, gentle, wait, kind, your turn and listen.

 

“I have seen an enormous improvement in my sons vocabulary since beginning signing. He is using ‘because’ in context and understands the meaning of complex emotions such as frustrated and disappointed. He is showing more empathy for others and able to express himself more easily.”
