Monday December 17, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Presented by Carol Garboden Murray, MSEd, Author of Simple Signing with Young Children
Sponsored by Gryphon House
In this edWebinar, Carol Garboden Murray, MSEd, Author of Simple Signing with Young Children demonstrates how to use American Sign Language (ASL) while simultaneously engaging children with songs and felt stories. The goal of this presentation is to give participants an up close and personal demonstration of how ASL can complement and enrich a song and story experience for children ages 2-6.
This is a fun workshop which invites participants to sign and sing along. The edWebinar recording is also available, so the songs, stories and signs can be easily accessible for review and immediately incorporated into an early childhood teaching practice. During this session, Carol integrate a short discussion about how combining songs, signs and stories reinforces literacy skills in a way that allows children to see, hear, touch and feel language.
This recorded presentation will be of particular benefit to early childhood teachers for children ages 2-6, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners.
