Phew! Can you believe it? Finished the whole alphabet! Right in time to attend a real sign language course and learn there are some variations. Mostly, it is that the hand is placed in front of one’s chest and the fingers extend towards the other person, so in letters like “C” and “D” the illustrated view would be the side view. However, I still think this is a cool poster for illustrating how the asl alphabet relates to our written alphabet.
Hey, you know what’s a cool idea? Teachers designing worksheets and resources they see a need for in schools, posting them on a site to be downloaded and used by other teachers, then paying eachother for it, instead of a big corporation. Yup, cool. I learned about this through a teacher friend who asked me make some simple illustrations for her work booklets to help young ones learn to read. The target age is pre-k to grade 1/2. A couple of the booklets are free, and can be viewed and downloaded here:
I’m always happy when I get to use my creative energy on a project with someone I know and like, which was the case for this super cute alphabet work book a teacher friend asked for some help on. I did the pictures, while Danita put together the text and layout. I’m really happy with how it turned out!
