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!

    • I've been missing sign class with all this going on, and am excited to find an ASL chatroom! I'm hearing, and I've been learning informally for about 4 years now. Definitely no where near fluent yet though :P I can't wait to meet you all! 
    • Hi there Jose! Sorry for the delayed response, I forget to check the forum regularly. But yes I'd be interested in practicing ASL together sometime. I've got Skype or Google Meet if either of those would work for you at all.
    • I'm trying to sign the following English question:  Do you spend a lot of time in your office? My best shot, utilizing my limited knowledge of ASL, is: YOUR OFFICE YOU LONG-TIME STAY? Any feedback is welcome. 
    • I've always envied bi- and multi-lingual people. I took my first ASL class with a friend who is experiencing voice loss, and am now in my third class. I joined this forum as a means to connect with others interested in ASL, and to ask questions.
