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. I am trying to learn ASL and its hard because for 5 years I was learning PSE without knowing. Now I need help breaking the PSE cycle and learning ASL. I would love help with ASL interpretation as well for songs because I learn because when things are writing down. I want to practice ASL conversations,  ASL interpretation,  and fingerspelling faster. I tried interpretation on song so far (still editing.) If anyone is willing to help with anything we can Skype. Just message or reply. Thank you
    • I want to be a polyglot too. I'm learning ASL and Vietnamese right now.
    • I'm also learning to sign and would love to practice! I'm from the UK so haven't actually used ASL for over a year now, so am in desperate need to practice before I forget too much! I started learning ASL back in 2017 but only get to use it for three months at a time, as I work at a summer camp in Texas.
