🎢 FIVE CURRANT BUNS 🎢

Today at ⭐️ Super Stars ⭐️ we introduced the kids to a rather traditional counting rhyme.

The children were able to watch a clip of Michelle, our BSL Tutor, signing the rhyme and we acted it out too using a fabulous set of knitted props which were specially made for us.

We don’t believe deaf children should be denied opportunities to participate in and learn nursery rhymes as they are essential for building the foundations for reading later. However, we equally don’t believe deaf children should simply copy the rhyme actions with not an iota of understanding. A multi sensory approach is of great benefit with a mixture of acting out the rhyme, signing and singing. We have been using this approach for a while now and can see the children know some of the rhymes off by heart. Most children are not able to repeat the rhymes word for word (rhymes by their very nature are part of the oral literary tradition and are very hard for deaf children to make sense of) but can predict correctly what is coming next and know the stories of the rhymes off by heart.

We are so blessed to be part of this experience 🎢🎡
