Although our school sits in the midst of corn fields, it is a mecca for deaf children from across the county. Deaf students join their hearing classmates in the classroom and for school activities.
As the population of our deaf and hard of hearing students grows, so does the interest of our hearing students to learn sign language to communicate with their deaf classmates.
The sign language interpreters and deaf students plan to do what we can to meet the need of all of our registered sign club members.
I'm so proud of Cohort IV of my sign language club. We are close to the end of one semester of learning the manual alphabet and some simple vocabulary. Next semester, students will work in small groups in centers/stations where I can better see the individual strengths and weaknesses of the young signers.
I create custom material (such as task cards with images of signs to identify) for our language learners and being able to print material in color makes it visually appealing to students.
I look forward to creating engaging centers as students learn basic phrases that will help them communicate with their deaf peers and the deaf community.
