This set of three individual lessons will help you to teach you little one to sign to a variety of popular children's songs, including: 'Itsy Bitsy Spider,' 'Baa Baa Black Sheep,' 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,' 'Old MacDonald Had a Farm,' 'On Top of Spaghetti,' 'Row, Row, Row your Boat,' 'It's Raining, It's Pouring,' 'RED,' 'YELLOW,' 'GREEN,' and 'BLUE.'

Children love putting actions to songs, so why not teach them ASL signs to use with the songs? These lessons will take you through each song step-by-step and show you the different signs you can use when singing the songs.

My favourite of the series
~ Natalka

This lesson was so amazing!
I have been singing these songs to my daughter all week (it's been raining and we went on a trip to a farm as well :)
It's sooo nice to be able to put signs to the songs that we've been enjoying - And my dad used to sing me the spaghetti song when I was a little girl. Hopefully she can learn it before we go to visit him in a few months!

Thank you Laura!

Great, great stuff!

~ Karen209

I found this lesson very helpful. It would also help if pictures accopmanied the video to assist with learning the signs. Thanks

Laura is great!
~ brittanie

I've already forwarded this to a all of my soon-to-be-mommy friends. Laura is so talented in her ability to teach babies sign language. As seen in the video, her daughter is incredibly smart already! I can't believe she speaks so well and at such a young age.

This video is very useful and full of great information. Learning how to sign 'Old McDonald' and 'On Top of Spaghetti' are great first songs to teach your kids.

That baby is so cute!
~ Tina

Laura's baby is adorable singing and signing those songs. I liked that she explains you can just do the main signs until you and your baby are ready for more. It makes it fun but not intimidating.
