Guest Post: Early Childhood Education: Acquiring Sign Language

Please enjoy this guest post from Emily :)

Early Childhood Education – Acquiring Sign Language

In this diversity society we live in, bilingual ability is something that is not only an advantage to have, but is starting to become a necessity. Along with this trend is the ability to communicate articulately in non-verbal ways for the benefit of the disabled- primarily the deaf.

While learning sign language is a advantage in life in general, if is as particularly an advantage in a tilted economic time. With a growing shortage of qualified interpreters fluent in American Sign Language, career opportunities have been very available in the area. If this current trends continue, it's likely that skilled ASL interpreters will have little problem securing lucrative employment in a society where such a commodity is destined to be in short supply.

Signing Before They Can Speak

A great deal of research has come to the conclusion that ages 2 to 5 is the prime time to educate children in different modes of communication and language. This goes beyond the spoken word (though it is an optimal time for children to learn a second language); many young children have an aptitude for signing as well. This can be taught at home or some child care programs incorporate it into their curriculum.

Many indigenous peoples around the world, including American Indian nations, have used sign language for centuries to communicate with other tribes with whom they do not share a language. Some paleontologists and anthropologists theorize that Neanderthals – who apparently lacked the vocal mechanism to produce many spoken words – depended a great deal upon hand gestures to communicate. So it's really not as odd as you may think!

In fact, recent research suggests that sign language is innate! An article published in the Boulder Daily Camera in 2003 presented strong evidence that babies as young as six months old communicate with their hands:

" 6 to 7 months, babies can remember a sign. At eight months, children

can begin to imitate gestures and sign single words. By 24 months, children

can sign compound words and full sentences. They say sign language reduces

frustration in young children by giving them a means to express themselves

before they know how to talk." (Glarion, 2003)

The author also cites study funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development demonstrating that young children who are taught sign language at an early age actually develop better verbal skills as they get older.

The ability to sign has also helped parents in communicating with autistic children; one parent reports that "using sign language allowed her to communicate with her [autistic] son and minimized his frustration...[he now] has an advanced vocabulary and excels in math, spelling and music" (Glarion, 2003).

The Best Time To Start

Signing during early childhood education not only gives them a way to communicate, it can also strengthen the parent-child bond – in addition to giving children a solid foundation for learning a skill that will serve them well in the future. The evidence suggests that the best time to start learning ASL is before a child can even walk – and the implications for facilitating the parent-child relationship are amazing.

CSN Stores Review: P'kolino Table and Chair Set

Ever since I learned about CSN Stores I have been surprised just how much I use them! With SAP growing up fast (too fast it seems!) we are always in need of something new. So when CSN Stores asked if I would do a review for them it took me a bit to get around to doing so. Why? Because I could not decide just what, out of EVERYTHING they offer, I wanted the most!

Of course, I finally did make my decision, and once again, I was very impressed with CSN Store's customer service and quality products!

SAPsMaMa Thinks: Child Table and Chair Sets

After much debate about WHAT to review from CSN Stores, Hubby and I agreed to purchase a wooden table and chair set for SAP. Turning 2 years old soon, and with holidays coming up, we figured it was time enough she had her own area to eat, do art, play puzzles, or anything else her little mind could come up with!

CSN Stores really was the perfect place to shop for wooden table and chair sets. They had every well known brand you could hope for....and most with free shipping! Prices were often less than any other site I had looked at earlier in the year ...making our choice a sealed deal since we knew we were getting the best deal anywhere! In fact, the sale prices and free shipping at CSN Stores I've found to be equal to many of the "deal a day" sites product deals. Every day! Now that is a deal!

Since we wished to stay eco-friendly and non-toxic, I did quite a bit of searching on CSN Stores! Some of my favorite "green" table and chair sets I found were:

Not Neutral Table and Chair Set
Made from recycled materials, and environmentally friendly!

EcoTots Table and Stools Set
  • Constructed of 100% formaldehyde-free birch plywood SmartWood
  • Eco-friendly, non-toxic, water-based stains
  • UV cured finishes minimize greenhouse gases
  • No tools or hardware required
  • Designed and manufactured in USA
  • Member of the Sustainable Furniture Council
Plan Toys Large Scale Modern Table and Chair Set
Created with environmentally friendly methods using environmentally safe materials

SAPsMaMa Thinks: P'kolino Little One's Table and Chairs Set

With all of these wonderful eco-friendly choices, it was hard to choose! The final choice I did make, however, was of the P'kolino Little One's Table and Chairs Set.

Although my main goal was to get a wooden table and chair set that was toxin free and eco-friendly, I also had to keep budget in mind. So, given that, the value of P'kolino furniture definitely stood out from the rest! Since exact information was not given about the materials used in their table and chair sets I ended up speaking over email and on the phone to the company asking specific questions about chemicals I wished to avoid, and P'kolino stood up to the test!

Since it passed my toxin-free test, the next step was ordering it! Must I say...CSN Stores you outdid yourselves! This table and chair set came so fast we didn't even get time to clean our living room to make room to set it up! It stayed packaged for a week before SAPsDaDa put it together! Wonderful service!

I would love to comment on how it was to assemble, but SAPsDaDa surprised me and put it together one day when I wasn't home! So thoughtful, how could I be upset! He did say that by himself (without SAP bugging him!) it took him about 1 1/2 hours to assemble. When I ordered it he expected it to be shabby construction like all the other cheaper wood products we've seen in stores, but he was quite satisfied with the construction. The way it's assembled and put together, the quality is well shown! SAPsDaDa is a woodworker, so he knows how to put together quality pieces of furniture!

The table and chair set newly assembled!

My question to him then: So, is this a good enough quality product we would want to purchase from them again? The answer: Yes! So guess what SAP's xmas and bday money is going toward? The P'kolino Toddler Bed! :) And YES we will be purchasing that from none other than CSN Stores! Watch for that review in the future, we're hoping to purchase this by Febuary!

On sale for $206.99 and free shipping...CSN Stores has this toddler bed the cheapest of anywhere!

Since the table and chair set have been put together it's been wonderful to have around! I had been hoping to purchase a set for a while, but was not sure if SAP was ready for it. We had tried a fold out kids table and chair set at SAPsNaNa's house during Halloween and she just seemed to play with that...pushed the chairs around, kicked the table instead of stuff!

With this table and chairs...nope. It's nice and sturdy, she tries to push the chairs around , but the table stays in place. The table is just the right size too. I put a splatter mat over it when she's doing art work and it covers the table very nicely. There's two chairs that come with the set, but definitely enough room for a full set of 4...great for the holidays with kids coming over!

Playing with her "kitties" while sitting at her table!

Of course, with the splatter mat over the table, SAP thought it was amazingly fun. Time to play fort! So now we have a new game in our house. Who knew having a wooden table and chair set would be so useful? SAP now has a place to sit and play with her puzzles: no more puzzle pieces on the floor for SAPsDaDa to step on. Happy family!

Her new favorite game...hide and seek under the "fort"! :)

Something we considered when we purchased our living room coffee table was safety with SAP...she was young and the table was glass and not with rounded edges...made me worried. I had not even considered that with a kids table and chair set, but I sure was glad that P'kolino considered it. SAP often does not watch where she's going, trips, hits her head...and within the first week of having the table and chairs out, she tripped and fell into one of the chairs when she was playing. It was at that point I was very glad that the tops of the chairs were rounded!

I am also a fan of the neutral colors...quite modern style! I feel very confident in my purchase knowing that it will be able to fit nicely in any kids room, whether it be any future children, or a hand me down. This table is built to last!

Pushing her chairs around like they're walkers :)

What SAPsMaMa LOVES about the P'kolino Table and Chairs Set!

  • Modern style and colors
  • non-toxic materials used
  • solid construction and assembly....will last a long time!
  • Rounded tops of the chair sides so safe for clumsy babies...and mamas!
  • Works well even for a 21 month old!
  • Stays in one spot, does not move around or easily gets kicked around by the kids sitting at the table
  • Good sized table...fits the splattermat on or under it perfectly
  • so many wonderful uses!
  • Great price...especially at CSN Stores!
  • The bottom of the chairs are also rounded...makes it easy for little kids to move around and sit at the table themselves without help
Suggestions for Improvement: There's always room for improvement!
  • I would love if the materials were more eco-friendly (made from recycled material, etc.). However, I do realize this would raise the price, which is what gave them an advantage over other companies.
  • Rounded edges on the table
  • Provide info on materials and facts that it is formaldehyde free etc. so that more customers are aware and might choose P'kolino products over other comanies.
  • Sell extra chairs separately so that I can have 4 chairs instead of just 2.

The product(s) provided for the review ($45 Gift Certificate toward my purchase of the P'kolino Table and Chair Set) was sent to me free of charge from the company or the PR agency. The opinions expressed are 100% my own.
Text in Italics is from the company's website/social media site or otherwise sited from party it was received from.

Once again, a huge pleasure to work with CSN Stores! My number one shopping spot for anything I need! Thank you!

My Precious Kid LLC Store Review and $25 GC Giveaway

As a mother, I try to make the best decisions for my little girl as I can. Usually that means I am doing a lot of research. These days however, it's not just trying to find what the best rated product is or what the best deal is or can I get something similar for a lower price, the main concern is safety.

No matter what choice you are faced with these days, any infant product you research safety will come up as an issue. Baby bottles? The choice is not just between plastic or glass, but does it have BPA. Crib bedding? The choice is which bumper pads are safest to prevent SIDs...are sleep positioners a good idea. Diapers? The choice of disposable versus cloth, and even if you choose cloth to stay away from the chemicals in disposables, do you want to use only natural organic fibers. The decisions are endless and research is changing recommendations all the time!

What I have come to realize is that the answer to all of these questions is to find a reliable and trustworthy store to provide me with the products that are safe and the knowledge on how to protect my little girl from harm. When I have a problem with safety no longer do I Google search for reviews and try to make what I believe to be an informed I have everything I need in one place! My Precious Kid LLC is that place!

SAPsMaMa Thinks: Child LocatorWhen I made my first order from My Precious Kid online store I had a hard decision to make! Unlike other decisions I had made before as to which item to get that would be safest for my child, the decision I was faced with this time was the spending limit I had! There was so many amazing items that we did not just want, but needed!

After convening with the hubby I decided to get something that I felt would be a wonderful safety tool: the Child Locator!

SAP is a very active child. She is also a very trusting child. She will run and play, and thus there has been many occasions she has run straight for a road after her favorite toys...trucks! Unfortunately those trucks are unsafe, and a young child cannot understand that concept, so it became essential for us to figure out a way to keep our eyes on her, even when we had to take our eyes off of her for a second. We felt that this child locator would be up for this task.

The second reason we felt that the child locator would be a wonderful safety tool to have around is quite a scary thought, but a reality non-the-less. Unfortunately in today's world there are children kidnapped, and that is a danger that parents need to consider when going to public locations where it is easy to lose track of your child. With this child locator I felt a little bit more secure that I would know how far away SAP was from me at all times.

Didn't get in her way even in the most active activities!

Our order from My Precious Kid, with our child locator, was received rather quickly! I was quite happy with this since I wished to get my safety equipment ASAP. I know the quicker the better for many who wait until a problem presents itself before they choose to take action and order safety equipment, so this is something to take into consideration. Everything was packaged very well and there was even extra information sent with the package regarding other safety products and information that was very helpful!

To figure out the child locator I first tested it at home, but our apartment is quite small and it was a little difficult to really get a feel for how well it would work. So....time to go to the park! You just know SAP loved that idea!

Running away to play! But not without us knowing how far away she is! :)

The child locator is very simple to use, which was very surprising to me! It has a light on both the receiver and the transmitter, and an on/off switch on both ends as well. The only thing you need to really understand is how long to push the button to get the transmitter to start receiving, otherwise it's as simple as flipping a switch! I don't know about you but with a toddler that will not sit still this is important!

The "bear" receiver easily straps on to a shoe, a wrist, an ankle, backpack...anywhere you'd like! One of my major questions I had when I purchased this product was, will SAP accept it? Will she refuse to wear it and take it off? That would pretty much defeat it's purpose. My worry was abated however when we took our locator for it's first test run at the playground, for she thought it was a toy! We put it on her wrist like a bracelet and she loved it! Also, running, climbing, doing all the normal things kids do, it did not get in her way at all!

Stayed on her wrist even while climbing!

We did have one incident at the playground that day that showed us that the child locator could have come into handy. I had to walk back to the car to put something away and so switched off the child locator, leaving her with daddy. While I was walking back I noticed daddy turn his back on SAP for a split second...and away she went! Straight for the active area of the playground and within a couple seconds got kicked by an older kid in the head who was on a swing. If the locator had been on at the time we would have know she was off running away into a area she could have gotten hurt, and although it was just a minor injury it could have been worse. This is just one minor example of how this locator can help you with safety!

We are very happy with our locator, and although with winter on the horizen we do not use it as much anymore, this is one piece of safety equipment she will not outgrow quickly! Very much worth it's money.

Nifty Nappy Wool Longies Giveaway for Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Your Fluff! Event

Wool Longies Giveaway!

Are you participating in the Pre-loved Cloth diaper auction event going on at SAPsMaMa's Facebook Fan page tonight?! An excellent chance for scoring some used fluff!

Vilate from Nifty Nappy has been generous enough to sponsor giving away a pair of her wool longies to one lucky winner participating in this event! These are great for cloth diapering, or even just as extra protection and warmth at night this winter!

Nifty Knickers


Custom Fit, Temperature Regulating, and Upcycled!!

Nifty Knickers are a pull up cover made from upcycled wool sweaters that we hand-pick for softness and absorbency. These are great for economic cloth diapering as you can use the longies in place of pants and pajamas.

• Handpicked upcycled wool sweater with 80%+ wool
• Hidden elastics for ultimate containment and comfort
• Custom fit for your little one
• Unique -no one will have a matching one
