Louisโ€™ Nursery have just been round to deliver this very special Motherโ€™s Day card from my gorgeous little manโ™ฅ๏ธ Such a wonderful boost and has brought a huge smile to my face on what has been such a gloomy week of conjunctivitis, an ear infection, high temp, cough and cold which has resulted in isolation! His immune system has been truly smashed but you have been so brave and we are hoping these antibiotics will kick in very soon and I will have my happy, funny and cheeky little monkey back in time for Sunday ๐Ÿงกโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿงกโ˜€๏ธ
Roots for Life: what a nurturing and loving place to send your child. Cassie is just the best and always puts a smile on a childโ€™s face! We will miss you in South Africa but we know that your new venture will be just as amazing! ๐Ÿ’•

Every time a child achieves something that they are struggling with they get to fill the jar to to the next line making the duck float ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅ

We are literally learning another language - ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
Except itโ€™s not using words ๐Ÿคญโ€ฆ itโ€™s using our fingers, hands and arm movement. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป
I canโ€™t explain how little I knew about sign language before meeting Richard.
I have always watched the small screen at the bottom of the TV when sports / politics or news is on and been amazed at how fast the peoples hands move.
So have you right ? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜œ amazing everytime !

Watching and seeing the intense concentration of the children during our weekly lessons has been incredible. They are so super smart at remembering the signs.
I have seen the HUMONGOUS benefits of learning to sign, as well as memory skills and testing their higher abstract and creative thinking. ๐Ÿ’ญ

To : Teacher Richard
Thank you for helping us learn to sign. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸปWe appreciate you ! ๐Ÿ’œ


Well hello .. what may this be ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ญ
