We use makaton to help our children to understand and communicate. Children are able to communicate through Makaton and signing before they can verbalize the words. Makaton can support the development of vocabulary as adding information to the spoken word helps build information about language and how language is stored.
One of our settings in Cheltenham, Giggles Nursery, are working on a series of short Makaton videos, which will be posted to Facebook the first Monday of every month. Watch our first video below!
Preschool are learning signs for ‘happy’ and ‘sad’ when they are asked ‘how are you today?’
