I’m a big believer in that EVERY child should know two languages! I don’t, even though my grandmother and mother speak Spanish! I’ve been trying to get them to teach Mason but that hasn’t been working very well!
Emily and Kathleen from Zionsville Educational Child Care put together this great article that I wanted to share with you guys, I thought it was really interesting especially since I majored in Communication Studies in college!
“…by 6 to 7 months, babies can remember a sign. At eight months, children can begin to imitate gestures and sign single words. By 24 months, children can sign compound words and full sentences. They say sign language reduces frustration in young children by giving them a means to express themselves before they know how to talk.” (Glarion, 2003)
