DD watches this on PBS sometimes but we aren't actively trying to teach her ASL right now. I would like to though, and I think this show is a great way to do it. Has anybody else used this with your children? Have you taught them ASL another way?
My kids watch Signing Times when possible. We are working on learning sign but not hard pushing it. I actually have a whole 10 dvd series called Say It With Sign. It's an older series but I love it. I tried several different methods before falling in love with this series. The couple both sign fluently so even just general conversation is signed. And, my kids really seem to like it as well. They have picked up a lot of words and actually ask to watch the videos. You can buy the whole set on Amazon for about $300. And, I was able to initially try it by checking it out at my local library.
Oh yes, we love Signing Time! My oldest learned so much from that show. She had 100 signs within 3 months of starting them at 18 months old. I lost count when she had about 350 signs at 3 years old. We've only just started my 8 month old on them but she can sign MOM, DAD, MILK, and I think I caught MORE. We also just use sign in our daily life as I am nearly fluent.
I'm an instructor with Signing Time Academy because I love them so much and want to share with as many kids as I can!
