Learn Sign Language Conversations

We tried learning Spanish one year, but Caitlin and DJ really had no interest. Then last year we started learning sign language. DJ took to it much more than Caitlin, and since I already knew some from years ago of learning, it came pretty easy. This year I have purchased a sign language book for learning to sign conversations. It is still for beginners, so it shouldn't be too hard to learn and put it together. I will still add videos too, because sometimes the still pictures just don't tell the whole thing clearly. I use Youtube as my video source. Hopefully Caitlin will take more of an interest this year. Like Art, Writing, and Reading, Signing classes will be on Mondays, and Fridays. The book shown below is the exact book I purchased. If you are interested in you or your children learning Sign Language check it out.

that is good they have interest in sign language Melissa, how I wish I had learned that before too, I have had some experiences with deaf students, though they have a translator come with them, but I see them struggle still, how I wish I know how to and be the one communicating instead. Though I provide notes and step by step instructions, sometimes, it still is not enough to communicate to understand the material.

I don't if I had told you, but it has been my long time wish to learn sign language. I will check out the community adult class if they offer.

I find it so beauty when there is action while expressing oneself. It may be sound of silence, but it is beautiful.

P.S. I hope you can work out your iphone photos to your computer.

Enjoy your weekend!

Ms Ebie DJ and I are hand talkers anyways, so sign language seems almost natural to us. I hope you find some classes for you to take.
