How To Learn Sign Language

Signing Babies classes

I’m Sara Bingham, WeeHands Founder and author
of The Baby Signing Book. WeeHands Signing Babies classes are the original
WeeHands classes. Our Signing Babies classes together include 16 weeks of classes specifically
for families with babies who are newborn to walking. We’ve divided these 16 weeks into
4 different classes that are each 4 weeks long. There are no prequisites for our classes.
You can start with whatever classes suits your needs and your baby’s schedule. The first four week class is called Sign & Sing
At Home and teaches signs & songs to help you get started, food signs, family signs
and daily routine signs. The second four week class is called Sign
& Sing At Play and teaches signs & songs related to animals, manners, toys and the outdoors. The next four week class is called Sign & Sing
in My Room and teaches signs and songs related to life at home, your toybox, clothing and
bedtime. The last in our series of Signing Babies classes
is called Sign & Sing on the Road and teaches signs for vehicles, the grocery store, at
the park and at the zoo. Each week, with other new parents from your
community, you learn a minimum of 10 theme specific ASL signs. As well, each weekly theme
will introduce a new song and book sign with your little one. Our “Signing Babies” classes teach a number
of popular children’s songs, including Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Rubber
Duckie and more! You learn fun baby games that incorporate language development strategies
for you to play at home with your baby. Visit our website to find
