About the Author

Nellie Edge is a kindergarten teacher-researcher, literacy coach, nationally recognized early literacy presenter, folk musician, and recording artist. While teaching in a bilingual kindergarten in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she discovered the power of developing language and literacy skills through traditional Spanish and English folk songs. Her desire to make learning to read a successful and joyful journey for all children led to the publication of her Nellie Edge Read and Sing Big BooksTM, with accompanying Little Books, Parents as Partners connections, and Differentiated Literacy guides. A recipient of the, IRA Reading Excellence Through the Arts award, Nellie Edge is a proponent of using music, Sign Language, and all of the arts to enhance early literacy skills. She is the founder of the Northwest Coalition for Excellence in Kindergarten Literacy and a strong advocate for developing professional learning communities for teachers that inspire collaborative inquiry into best teaching practices. How do we make learning to read an engaging and successful experience for all young children? How can we involve parents as partners in developing vital literacy foundations while nurturing healthy dispositions towards learning? For over thirty-five years, these questions have been the driving force behind Nellie Edge and her dedicated work. Nellie's first publication was the best-selling children's cookbook, Kids in the Kitchen (a.k.a. Kindergarten Cooks). It was developed under this premise, fully illustrated to help her kindergartners on the Makah Indian Reservation connect cooking and reading in a delicious and meaningful way. Nellie has continued to focus her writing on creating joyful beginning reading experiences and providing culturally relevant language, thereby supporting parent involvement in early literacy development. Nellie's collaboration with Dr. Pat Wolfe, an internationally-recognized author, researcher, and expert on brain-based teaching, validated what many wise parents and teachers have intuitively discovered: Optimal learning experiences are emotionally engaging, multisensory, and take advantage of the musical brain! Now, after years of study and collaboration with accomplished kindergarten teachers on best practices for accelerating early literacy, Nellie shares an innovative, yet elegantly simple approach for teaching ABC and phonics skills in her newest book and CD from well-known publisher, Sign2Me® Early Learning. Through ABC Phonics: Sing, Sign, and Read, Nellie takes adults and children on a musical, kinesthetic, visual adventure, teaching them fingerspelling and the exquisite gestures of American Sign Language (ASL). This Total Emotional Physical Response experience produces dramatic recall, and the process is delightfully fun for everyone involved! In the book, Nellie Edge once again engages beginning readers in a celebration of language, and involves parents, teachers, and children in meaningful, life-long learning. She invites you to combine the memorable art of singing with the visual images of dancing fingers; effortlessly activating multiple pathways for ABC and phonics fluency: now all children can be gifted early learners! Come join the experience as we all, Sing, Sign, and Read!

More About the Author

Sign2Me® Early Learning is a highly respected, established company based in beautiful Mukilteo, Washington, just 20 minutes North of Seattle. Our offices and warehouse are just a short stone's throw from the sparkling waters of Puget Sound. Our dedicated team is committed to the development, production, publication, and distribution of print, video, and multimedia resources to help establish two-way communication between hearing parents and their hearing children through the use of genuine American Sign Language signs. Each of our products has been carefully developed with the common goal of leaving the world better than we found it! We hope you will consider the many benefits of using ASL signs to communicate with the babies and children you love. We promise that you will be amazed when your baby signs. Sign2Me® Early Learning is the original baby sign language company based solely on American Sign Language.

Sign2Me® Early Learning is revolutionizing the way adults view and interact with preverbal babies. Perhaps for the first time in history, infants and toddlers are able to express their wants, needs, and observations in a manner that is clearly understood by their adult allies. Recent research, coupled with the experiences of parents and childcare professionals, is confirming that using ASL signs offers a host of significant benefits.

Scientific research is revealing that a baby can understand and express much more than what was previously thought. Consider the fact that hearing babies can understand spoken words early in life, though spoken words are frequently more abstract than signed words. The sounds "m" and "ah" have no inherent meaning but, when combined to form the word "mama", babies quickly learn to associate this symbol with the nice woman who feeds and takes care of them! To some degree, all words and signs are abstract symbols. If we consistently use the word "mama" in context, most babies will learn to understand what this symbol means. If we also use the sign for "mama" whenever we say that word, babies will come to understand and relate this symbol as well.

Incorporating signs into your daily routine does not require fluency in American Sign Language. Rather, it teaches that even a few simple gestures can make a big difference in empowering and meeting the needs of a child. Parents and caregivers should start slowly by introducing several ASL signs that represent ideas babies can understand, like "more", "eat", and "milk". When babies are able to replace some of the screaming, whining, and crying with a few simple hand gestures, it can dramatically improve their relationships with caregivers.

With each day, more and more people are coming to recognize the power of signing as it changes the way they view and interact with preverbal children.

* Offer consistency through the use of an established, standardized language. Using standardized signs allow children, family members, caregivers, and other professionals to communicate using the same set of signs. This consistency helps facilitate transition from one setting to another.
* Are easy to learn for both children and adults. Most typically-developing children will learn and use somewhere between 20 and 50 signs before speech becomes their predominant form of communication. The good news for busy parents is that it is quite easy to learn these 20 to 50 essential signs, even without prior experience using ASL.
* Are easy for babies to understand, as many ASL signs are iconic; they are manual imitations of the actions or objects they represent. For example, the ASL sign for "bird" is demonstrated by placing the finger and thumb next to the mouth in the shape of a bird's beak.
* Are widely known and easily accessible. American Sign Language is the third most commonly-used language throughout the United States and Canada, and the strong guiding presence of the Deaf community in North America provides excellent opportunities to learn and utilize ASL.
* Allow for creativity by encouraging parents and babies to create their own sign when a standardized ASL sign does not exist. Be sure to document these special signs such that other caregivers may use them appropriately.

Format: Poster Verified Purchase
I purchased both the vertical and the horizontal version of this Wall Poster. I will cut one up to use as cards, perhaps, or find two places for them around the class. A perfect complement to the ABC Phonics book and CD. Now we need a BINGO game or matching game to round out the program and provide options for learning...
