Being able to identify and name everyday objects and events can enhance young children’s self-esteem and sense of achievement.
Learn how to greet people, the names of colours, what’s the weather like today, is that a bee or a wasp? And how to sign ‘Happy Birthday’ to your friends and family.
This book is also available as a Kindle ebook. Tablets and touch-screen technology can be particularly beneficial to reluctant readers and are an important way to engage key groups of young children where literacy is a concern.
The key-word vocabulary enables constructions in both British Sign Language (BSL) and Sign Supported English (SSE). Ideal for young children who are deaf or have special educational needs (SEN) in addition to all sign language learners and baby signers.
Includes: Basic Handshape Key and Fingerspelling Alphabet.
Each topic is colour-coded for easy reference and begins with a summary page of the signs, making a useful reminder page to go back to and test what you have learned.
Additional pictorial graphics based on the Mulberry Symbols from www.straight-street.com with kind permission.
Some signs, particularly those for colours, have a number of regional variations and the illustrations show more than one option.
The most commonly used versions of signs have been chosen but regional variations need to be checked with your local BSL community and face to face contact with native sign language users is recommended as the best way to learn.
Supported by the Let’s Sign BSL publications.
