Facebook Fan of The Week

Surprise!!
I am wanting this group to be more active and learn from each other about our infant & toddler signing adventure. To help promote this, for the month of October I will announce a Fan of the Week only on our facebook group (link below)!

What is a Fan of the Week?
The fan of the week is the most active signing friend- by sharing, liking, commenting on status updates or posting questions/comments/ideas for all to see!

When is the Fan of the Week determined?
Each Wednesday evening I will find out who was the most active on this site. From there you will be known as a Fan of the week. There will be 4 Fans of the Week in October (October 9, 16, 23 and 30)

Why do you want to be Fan of the Week?
Each of the Fan of the Week’s names will be placed into a bag and the winner will be picked by Elijah (On October 31)! The person who is picked will win a Sign & Sing Workshop for up to 5 friends!!! This will be held at My Smart Hands Saskatoon’s home studio. The date will be determined by what works for both our schedules!!
