American Sign Language (ASL)

Welcome!!!

Find the course outline here. We can’t wait to learn with you! Live classes will be held Fridays at 1 (I can work with you if that doesn’t work. Please email me).

Lesson 1

Lesson 2

Welcome to Week #2 of basic ASL! You are doing great ☺ Here is the materials that you will need to practice this week. The ASL Color by Number is an optional worksheet just for fun and to help you get better at recognizing the number signs. Also, going forward, there will be an additional bonus material included in your lesson. This is optional. It is there for those of you who want a challenge. It is also reviewed at the end of the pre-recorded lesson. You can always come back to these bonuses later – don’t overwhelm yourself. Remember, live classes are necessary so I will see you all Friday, September 18! 
Happy Signing!

Lesson 3

Lesson #4

You are doing great! Week #4 is here and going to be so much fun!! This week we will learn some of my favorite signs: Animals and Foods. As always, there is a pre-recorded video for you to watch and some handouts to review, accompanied by an optional worksheet and bonus signs. 
Happy practicing! See you in class!

Lesson 5

Hello Parents and Students!
We are almost half way to the end of class. That means we are on Week #5. This week we will start to learn some sentences – Yay! We will also learn more new signs such as ones for places and feelings. 
As I mentioned above, we are almost at the half way point meaning that next week, week #6, we will have a mid assessment. For the mid assignment, your child will sign a book from Eric Carle. They will pick ONE book to sign: “Brown Bear, Brown Bear,” “Panda Bear, Panda Bear,” or “Polar Bear, Polar Bear.” They do not need to have the book but if you do, that’s great. I have all the signs for the books already in a packet. I want to make sure they have plenty of time to study the book so please email me back, as soon as possible, with their choice of which book they want to sign so that I can email over that packet early. 
Thank you! Heather 

Lesson 6 – Mid-Assessment

Yea! You are half way to the end of Basic ASL! Welcome to week #6 – mid-assessment time! You choose “Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?” for signing. During the live class I will pull up the power point and you can sign it to the power point. That’s why I included the powerpoint for you to practice. Can’t wait to see you sign this story!
Happy Practicing!

Lesson 7

So now it’s week #7. Time to not only learn about people, wants/needs, but also time to start putting these signs together to form “sentences.” 
You are doing great!
