The kids have been learning American Sign Language, using a combination of books and videos. They watched Talking Hands the other day and it was nice and slow paced for the little ones and repetitive enough that even I know their signs after one viewing. We got it through Netflix, a favorite HS resource for us.
Today I found this comprehensive ASL site where you can look up words and see them signed with a little written description of what the sign looks like too. I was looking for “more,” since that’s something Alex asks for a lot and I wanted to show him the sign. I found that, along with everything from Mormon to moron as well. 🙂
I’m ordering some more sophisticated DVDs from Netflix next time. At some point I’d like to find a real person to do some tutoring with the kids and maybe a class. Anybody have any recommendations for other good ASL resources?
