Need ideas for a class


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am an intervention specialist and love sign language.  Over the years, I've taken a variety of different classes related to sign language, including two years of ASL instruction.  I rarely have gotten to use my skills on a consistent basis and, therefore, am somewhat rusty.  This year at school, I am teaching a 4 week enrichment class to 7th/8th grade students on basic sign language.  It is a lot of fun and the kids are really enjoying it.  A couple of things I am looking for are games or more active activities I can do with the kids and I'm wondering if there is an ALS font I could find and download on my computer--similar to other fonts (Times New Roman, Comic Sans, Arial...), but what I type in on the computer would appear on my screen in the sign alphabet.  Anyone have any hints/ideas for either of these things?

Thank you!

Hi Jill,

I'm not sure about games or activities as I'm just starting out with ASL myself, but Gallaudet is an ASL font. There are a few other free ones on this site (https://www.fontspace.com/category/sign%20language) but I think Gallaudet is easiest to read.

Best with your class!

    • Hi my name is Mamie and I'm 39 year old returning college student at NVCC. I am on my third semster of ASL but need a lot of practice and actually joined this forum hoping to meet people and get some practice in. I needed a language for my degree but chose asl as I have a family member who though I don't get to see often would love to be able to communicate with better. It's nice to meet everyone and if anyone would like to get together and practice or just chat please let me know. :)
    • Hello:  ASL Community I am interesting in learning ASL and hope this website will be rewarding experience.  Was introduced to signing about twenty five years ago while working at the Post Office in Atlanta, however I left that job in 1998 and haven't signed since.  Being retired, I would like to be re-introduced to ASL and am taking the "Start ASL" Online Course.  Started two weeks ago.  Hopefully will be able to put into practice the lessons I will be learning on this forum.  If anyone is in the beginning stage of ASL and would like to practice, please contact me.  Thanks.
