Summer of Signing

“I just recently purchased SignIt for my homeschool foreign language curriculum
this year. My 3rd grader learned sign language with Baby Signing Time starting at 6 months, as have my 3 kids after her. They ALL love to sign and SignIt was the next step after Signing Time.

My daughter (in the last 3 days) has watched and re-watched so many chapters I lost count. She LOVES it. I LOVE IT. My 1st grader loves it. They have all started signing in sentences and now my 4-year-old and 2-year-old have picked up on several phrases. What the what? This is insanely effective and VERY entertaining.

Absolutely worth the price tag. Thank you for creating this educational, FUN, easy way to learn signing beyond knowing individual words.”
