Activities, ideas, songs and stories using Makaton symbols and signs, designed to encourage learning through play.
The book covers six topics (me, houses and homes, gardening, transport, weather and bears) and includes useful everyday phrases and a finger spelling chart. Each topic contains a series of activities grouped under the headings: interests table, cooking and crafts. There are also suggestions for songs and stories at the end of each topic.
Sign and symbol illustrations are provided for each activity. And there are Makaton translations of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Thirsty Black Crow.
None of the activities depend on buying expensive materials, just using everyday items such as cardboard boxes, paper, paint, glue, oddments of wool, and scraps of fabric.
