Hi, I'm thinking of trying baby signing with my 6 month old, and it seems that local classes aren't up and running at the moment, so I'm considering an online class/course. I'm wondering if anyone has any recent experience of these or recommendations? Thanks
We did, we paid about £60 for a ten week course. Our reasons behind doing it were more just curiosity (and this sounds stupid but Katherine Ryan spoke v highly of it) so maybe our motivation wasn't high enough but tbh it became a bit of a chore. Our DD was about 7 months so couldn't concentrate on the screen. we ended up just me watching the course alone and DP taking DD out. For our purposes we should have bought a book or even just watched Mr Tumble. Not sure of your situation, though.
We've done two 'terms' of online Sing & Sign, and our daughter adores it, but she was a bit older when we started, 9 months. She started picking up signs quite quickly, and that definitely helped our motivation to keep learning/using new ones. She also loves the songs, and a couple of the easier action songs became a useful way to distract her during nappy changes.
Thanks, that's helpful. I'm similar, I was thinking it could be fun, and also something i could easily do with the LO, so it's useful to know how yours found it.
