Come Sign with Us: Sign Language Activities for Children
Here is a fully illustrated activities manual for teaching children sign language. Come Sign With Us features more than 300 line drawings of adults and children signing familiar words, phrases, and sentences using American Sign Language (ASL) signs in English word order.
Each of the twenty lively lessons introduces ten selected target vocabulary words in a format familiar and exciting to children. Used in conjunction with reading and grammar studies, sign language can improve vocabulary retention and reading comprehension.
All signs have equivalent words listed in English and Spanish as well. Come Sign With Us shows exactly how to form each sign, and offers a variety of follow-up activities and practice signing in realistic situations.
