Toddlers – 6th Grade

Houston, Texas 77082
At Mission Bend Christian Academy hearing students learn American Sign Language. Starting with kindergarten, all elementary students attend formal sign language classes once a week. Even the preschool children benefit from signing through the songs they sing in the classroom and in chapel. The initial intent of the course was to offer a fun and creative course that had the hidden benefits of learning. The children love the program and their natural curiosity motivates them to learn more and more. Initiated as a second language program, the sign language classes have proved to be valuable in strengthening the multiple intelligences of the students.
Learning sentence structure and the nuances of meaning of sign language increases the students verbal-linguistic intelligence. It assists in improving awareness and skills in grammar and descriptive language. The students learn syntax and sentence structure. Whenever a child learns a second language, his native language skills are strengthened and typically also flourish.
As the children become more confident in their signing, they are able to strengthen their intrapersonal intelligence. Communicating in sign language necessitates the correct facial expressions. The students learn how their body language conveys the varied shades of meaning of words that are being signed. It is not long before even the beginning students gain self-confidence in standing before people communicating in a new way.
