Class Descriptions

Level 1 classes run in either 4 or 6 week sessions. In class 
you will learn over 100 signs to use with your child. 
Classes are 45 minutes in length and are created for 
parents/caregivers and babies. In a playful, educational and 
language-rich environment, caregivers and children will build 
their American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary through 
instruction, interactive games and songs. You will learn 
recommended first signs; we will discuss the benefits of using 
ASL with infants and demonstrate easy techniques for 
successfully integrating signs into everyday life. Some of
the ASL vocabulary covered for this age group includes: 
everyday words, family, food, animals, emotions, opposites, 
bed time and play signs. All of our classes include a full 
color My Smart Hands curriculum book with a CD of the songs 
we teach. The books have pictures of the signs learned
along with descriptions for easy reference long after the 
class is over!

Level 2 classes are designed for graduates of My Smart 
Hands Level I class or for infants with basic ASL comprehension. 
These classes run in 4 week sessions. In level II you will 
learn over 120 signs to use with your child. Classes are 45 
minutes in length. We will review signs learned in My Smart 
Hands Level I and continue to build our signing vocabulary.
Weekly themes covered in class include: people, food, animals, 
emotions, opposites, weather and color signs. All of our classes 
include a full color My Smart Hands curriculum book. The books 
have pictures of the signs learned along with descriptions for 
easy reference long after the class is over!
