Marion Ross presents her sign language series “Everyday Signs” each Tuesday in March, April and May from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at the Blake Library, 2351 S.E. Monterey Road, Stuart. Classes are designed for children up to 3 years old and include singing, dancing and playing instruments. Registration is required and limited to 20 participants. Please call 772-221-1407 to register.

During each class families will learn American Sign Language and how it encourages literacy, social, cognitive and language development in children. The theme for March is colors of the rainbow, while April highlights the spring garden, and May features baby animals.  Tips and ideas will be shared for using signs and music throughout the week.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Martin County Library System, Inc., the classes are free and open to the public.
