Join Music & Movement teacher Mrs. Meyers as she moves to "The World is A Rainbow," by Greg & Steve. The second part of the video teaches ASL (American Sign Language) for the song lyrics. Learning sign language benefits children in many ways. It helps them to develop fine ad gross motor skills, helps them to communicate effectively, and enhance language and listening skills by helping them learn their ABCs and spelling.
