Our family loves learning ASL (American Sign Language) together. I actually started classes to become an interpreter for the Deaf but decided to take a break from school until my children are older, I am a two under two survival after all. I think ASL is a fantastic language for children (and adults!) to learn.
We’ve had a lot of fun doing this on our own as well as printing a few out for our homeschool preschool group! It has been great teaching the kids sign language together.
Why should preschoolers learn ASL?
Like I said before, I think ASL is a great language for children to learn. According to this post from Educational Playcare there are some fantastic benefits for children who are learning ASL including:
- +12 IQ point advantage
- Accelerated speech and emotional development
- Reinforcement of learning of educational concepts such as ABC’s, animals, and other specific themes
- Helps children remember words because there is muscle memory involved, and the more senses involved in learning, the greater memory retention the child will have
- Improves attentiveness to social gestures of others as well as of themselves
- Larger speaking vocabulary and ability to form longer sentences
- Earlier reading and larger reading vocabulary
In my personal experience, I found my son’s vocabulary exploded once I started my interpreter classes and I began signing with him every day. My daughter also started speaking and signing at a very young age. I really do think there is something about the muscle memory helping them to learn letters and words. But don’t take my word for it, try this fun alphabet match up game with your preschoolers today.
