Sign and Doodle offers innovative American Sign Language classes that embrace the benefits of teaching sign language to infants, toddlers, and children. At Sign and Doodle sign language and fine motor skills go hand in hand! Sign language increases fine motor skills, awareness of how to use hands purposefully, and the concept of meaningful communication. In return, fine motor developing activities increase a child’s ability to properly position hands to more correctly form the ASL signs. Classes are open to children of ALL ability levels.
Early Art Exploration Classes for Ages 18 months and Up
Do you have a budding artist? Looking for a place for them to explore and grow their artistic talents? Here at Sign and
Doodle we offer toddler, preschool, and early elementary art classes.
Your child will explore different art mediums and learn age appropriate art techniques while fostering a love of art.
Each class embarks with a Creative Circle time where we introduce the week’s theme with stories, songs and dance. To emphasize the theme children create a piece of art (in tandem with parent for ages 18 months – 2.5 years or solo for ages 2.5 to 8 years). Simple clean up activities and a closing circle conclude each class.
Sign and Doodle offers classes based on age, ability, and special needs. Each unique class is uniquely designed to be developmentally appropriate for the children attending.
Classes for children 3 months to 2.5 years are parent inclusive; you join in all the fun! During classes for children ages 3 to 5 years old we invite parents to observe from the observation area or outskirts of the room as often as they would like, but parents are able to run errands or go down stairs for a massage or hair cut. We do request that parents observe at least 2 sessions per month so that they will be able to reinforce skills at home. Classes for children 5 years old and up are designed as drop off classes with a few parent volunteers per class. However, many parents enjoy the classes as much as their children and like to stay for every class!
We also offer specialty sessions designed to meet the needs of children with special needs and one on one sessions tailored to address areas where deficits are present. See our specialty page for more information on the benefits of signing with exceptional children.
We offer classes for homeschool groups too! Contact us to discuss programs, times, days, and prices.
Attending a weekly class will allow your child to learn new material, practice signing with others, increase social skills, work on fine motor skills, and have fun learning! Classes are also beneficial to parents as a way to learn techniques for teaching children new information, providing ways to generalize and review new skills at home, and creating a fun, relaxed environment to interact with other parents!
