I highly recommend to everyone that asks--check your local library system to see which Signing Time DVDs they carry! You get a variety of options with absolutely NO cost. Our San Antonio Public Library carries all of the Baby Signing Time and regular Signing Time DVDs, so I make it a point to purchase the items I can't borrow from the library! Here are all those "extras" that we love:
Sing & Sign features three viewing options for each song:
- Learn to Sign: Rachel shows you how to sign each song all the way through, and explains why you might encounter different ASL interpretations of the same song.
- Sing & Sign: Watch the words on the screen and follow along with Rachel as you sign each song from beginning to end.
- Original DVD Versions: View music clips of each song, taken straight from the Signing Time series. It’s like watching all your favorite music videos back-to-back!
We LOVE this DVD! There are so many secondary signs to pick up...plus it covers lots of our favorite songs from Volumes 1-6, which eliminates the need for us to purchase those. :)
Our older daughter is an early reader, and I strongly believe that the Signing Time series played a huge role! One of the best tips I share with parents is to turn the captions on when children have their rare TV time. Story Time is one of our favorite DVDs--Counting Sheep is adorable!
This is a GREAT DVD for older preschoolers and early readers. Fingerspelling is such a fantastic tool for learning to spell, especially for visual and kinesthetic learners.
This DVD came out right after our first daughter learned how to use the toilet independently, so it's taken us a couple of years to be able to watch and enjoy this with our second daughter! :) Kate is in the beginning stages of potty training, but she definitely has a head start after watching this DVD a couple of times a month. It has so many positive messages that any child can benefit from, plus very helpful/practical signs.
Rachel and the Treeschoolers (DVD + CD), Episode 1: A Rainy Day:Rain interrupts the TreeSchooler’s plans to play outside. The lightning and thunder scare Abacus Finch. Rachel and the TreeSchoolers show Abacus that understanding something can make it less scary. This episode teaches the following skills, concepts and values:
- weather concepts
- problem solving
- word rhyming
- sign language
This is the first of Rachel Coleman's new series and it's adorable. It's definitely light on the signs, but it's nice to have a familiar face introduce new ideas about weather--and the songs are great, too! New DVDs are expected later this year!
Starting tomorrow (June 3rd), all DVDs on the Signing Time website are just $10! This is an annual sale, so be sure to stock up--we won't see prices this low until next year!
