Liven Up Baby and Toddler Storytimes with Sign Language
A 90-minute webinar
Thursday, March 22, 2018, 1:00pm Eastern/12:00pm Central/11:00am Mountain/10:00am Pacific
Signing with young children of any hearing ability fosters bonding, stimulates language development, and reduces frustration for caregiver and child. Learn how to use sign language in storytimes to broaden their appeal and make them more participative. In this interactive workshop, Kathy MacMillan—American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter, librarian, and storyteller—will use video examples to provide easy-to-learn signs that can be retaught and incorporated into stories, rhymes, and songs. You will be able to use the skills learned in this workshop to create programs that will help you, your staff, and parents communicate better with children.
