Sign Language and Phonics-Tip #1

In my previous post on sign language and phonics I talked about the benefits of connecting phonics and sign language.  In this post I bring you a great resource that can teach you quickly and easily the various signs you might need.  This website, called Handspeak.com, gives you an online dictionary that shows videos of people signing rather than other ones that show pictures. After all, sign language can not be shown accurately through words since it is a visual language. 

I suggest that you use the ASL dictionary portion of the website. You just choose the word you want, click play, and watch the video which shows how to create the sign for your word. Enjoy!
