Through your teaching you will increase the children’s learning potential by integrating the Emma and Egor Supplemental Sign Language Curriculum into your preschool program, developmental program or home school education. Take a peek inside this classroom.
Children naturally use gesture-speech as they attempt to formulate their first words. For example, they will mimic eating a cookie when they want a cookie. Supplementary gesture-speech continues to develop as they form two-word utterances. Those “gestures” are signals to the adult that a child
is ready to begin multi-word speech. Yet we often ask our students to “sit on those busy hands” and communicate without this innate behavior.
If you are interested in promoting early communication, enhancing gross and fine motor skills, improving early decision making and decreasing frustration while developing cognitive enhancement, then Emma and Egor is the Signing Exact English supplemental curriculum for you.
