Ms. Conroy from Monroeville NJ is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need Signing Time DVDs, providing more quality content on how to sign different vocabulary, use their faces to show emotion and meaning, and communicate in sentences in ASL.
Twenty seven K-2 students signed up for the inaugural year of our Sign Language Club. Those students in other homeroom classes sign to me and to each other in the hallways. Those in my regular Kindergarten class do what might be seen quietly finger-spelling sight words, number answers in Math class, and signing vocabulary they know in books.
These students are so excited to learn a new language, that their drive has almost outpaced my plans every week!
They are little sponges, soaking up the instruction. Other teachers and parents have told me that the club members are eager to teach them as well!
Learning Sign Language can improve many aspects of a child's communication skills, as well as giving them use of another language. Students who learn sign language are better spellers, as they can both see and hear the word. They will improve their fine motor skills, potentially improving coordination and strength.
Students who can sign are better able to read body language and understand feelings and emotions - making them better communicators.
Having a greater supply of DVD videos and tutorials will give my students the chance to satisfy their desire to learn all they can about Sign Language, and will fuel my fledgling club with material for years to come.
