You Baby Can Read Month 6...
Volume 4, however, has proven to be more difficult for the twins. Not because of the vocabulary words introduced, but the speed at which the words flash across the screen. I presume they are able to read them, but they can in no way sign them fast enough to communicate them to us. When shown the words, they can sign them one at a time, but when shown three words, they will only sign one of them. This is another hurdle we face with them being non-verbal. They know well over 250 to 300 signs, but they still don't put them together in sentence form at all. I will continue to use volume 4 with them for another month.
Just for fun, both boys LOVE for me to write words on the magna doodle. They love to show off. They love to learn new words. My husband Tom has even written words down that are not on the flashcards, books, or video and they have signed it right. We were amazed!!!! I think because they watch Signing Times videos as well... these videos teach children to sign with animation, music and sign language BUT they also have the written word on the screen. I believe the boys are learning those words as well now.
I am totally happy with this program. I would totally recommend the program to anyone on the fence about starting it. I plan on continuing with the program and beyond. I thank Dr. Robert Titzer, Ph.D. for coming up with a program that teaches children who are very visual learners to succeed in their reading journey.
