I've written about signing time before, but I just had to say once more how much fun we have with it. It made a HUGE difference in Havilah's frustration level as it enabled her to communicate so much better. Watch her with her beginning signs here. It is only 1/2 hour long, so it doesn't feel like they are sitting in front of the TV all day.
Another special time of the day is our reading time. After we've finished lunch, we all snuggle up in the living room with blankets and pillows. We have read Heidi, Elsie Dinsmore, Tales of the Kingdom and we've just started our favorite, Little House in the Big Woods. Some of these were a little beyond their level, but that just required more explanation and teaching time throughout. This time is wonderful for practicing sitting quietly, not distracting each other, paying attention etc., and also for excellent discussion about the characters.
So, here is your chance to join in our fun!!!!
I am going to be giving away (3) items.
Signing Time Volume One. I would recommend it for 1-8 years olds, although I must admit, I enjoyed learning the signs too!
This book is packed with beautiful, exciting and informational stories. I love this book ( makes me want to butcher a hog!) and it is at a great level for the girls to follow the story.
As I wrote about in my last post, this book was a perfect starter for Bethany. I'm throwing in a maze and dot to dot book as well. These are perfect for the little brother or sister who really wants to do "school " too!
So here's the rules!!!
