 Brief description of the Talk-n-Drum program:

This is a method to teach speech & language (basic American sign-language incorporated into every curriculum) through instrument playing, singing, chanting and movement to specially composed Talk-n-Drum songs. It is rooted in Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences VAK- visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning so children hear, feel and see the sounds of words and complete phrases of the target language. In addition, the method develops focus, motor, listening and social skills, eye-hand coordination, spatial awareness and critical thinking. Most of all, T-n-D fosters a love of learning by keeping the focus on FUN! 

Our little ones are currently learning Spanish and sign language. This summer will we learn Italian!
