Sign Language

Entries into each section on this wiki will be structured so that this basic information is available. We will include the TITLE of the application, with a link to the broad description and rating on iTunes. The ICON is simply a screen shot of what will show up on the device. WHO describes the student you have used this particular app with. WHERE indicates whether the app was used at home, school, or in therapy. HOW describes the manner in which you used it. This is also the place to elaborate on other ideas for application. WHY/WHY NOT provides the contributer an opportunity to indicate the value of the app, whether they would use it again, and rationale for the opinion. We invite anyone else who has used the app to comment on anything about it... different whos, hows and whys....

Sign and Sing
The sign and sing app takes simple familiar nursery rhyme/songs and pairs the sign language with them. The free version comes with only one song, Twinkle Twinkle. Each song has a video of the song sang and signed by animated babies. There is also a section to explore the apps and have a real person video tutorial of the signs in the song. There are additional songs available as an in app purchase.

I have used this app with a few children who have hearing impairments who are learning sign language as their primary language. I have also used these with numerous toddlers learning sign language to supplement their speech. Children have all be highly engaged with the babies in the videos who sign. I will continue to use it with young children.

Additional ideas/comments from others:
The free
The app having one free song was a great way to
explore the app. I have bought several of the
additional songs. I liked them all except the set
with Wheels on the Bus. This song doesn't seem
to have the signs paired up with the singing right and doesn't do as many of the songs. zzzzz
Free for one song.

Looks like the next 9 songs is not a package for 2.99

(was .99 for 3 songs when I bought them)
