Benefits of using Sign Language in your Weather Forecast.
ASL can be used with all types of intelligence, which makes it a great way to add to any curriculum.
- Signing and speaking are part of linguistic intelligence; learn one word in two ways.
- With logic-mathematical, kids can see how language grows.
- Musical; add signals to songs or rhymes that kids already know.
- Body-kinesthetic: As we sign, kids can feel the words or letters.
- In spatial learning, the child sees the sign take shape.
- Interpersonal; the child signs with a group, a parent, or a teacher.
- Lastly, intrapersonal learning lets the child sign while reading.
