Sing and Sign
Using signs with babies is a way to focus on eye contact, on connecting with the baby, and on being present and tune in to the baby's cues and signals. Now you can learn this in Øbro-Hallen
Once the baby can sign back, it will mean much for her/him to be understood - there will be less frustration as the baby will be able to tell the parents what he/she needs. Sing and Sign is UK's most popular baby signing classes and they are now coming to Øbro-Hallen in the new baby activity room.
It will be 10 weeks of music and songs - and baby signs - with the instructor Maya Hagemann and her companion Jessie Cat. It is an opportunity for extra social time with the baby while learning lots of useful signs - so the participants will be able to communicate with their babies before they can talk.
The group will sing traditional nursery rhymes as well as songs written especially for the course. Every sign used in the songs relates to the first words of a baby's world. Nappies and bathtime, hiding games and bedtime. There is a song about everything, and babies love to hear them.
Apart from singing and playing instruments, props and pictures will be used - and Jessie Cat loves to get a cuddle. It is supposed to be a relaxed, enjoyable way for parents and babies to learn.
Signing is also a useful tool for multilingual families as the signs can become the bridge between the different languages spoken at home.
