Today, I taught sign language to astudent who was extremely interested in the language. This picture displaysme teaching the sign for “brother” to Ashley Bridges.
In this picture, I am teaching Ashley the sign for “interesting.”Later on, I taught Ashley to use the word in a simple sentence.
When I asked Ashley what she was interested in learning to sign, she immediately said “food”. In thispicture, I am teaching Ashley the sign for “hamburger”.
This picture was taken during the time I was teaching Ashley to signpersonal statements. In this picture, I am teaching Ashley to sign “My name is Ashley.”
Today, I went on a shopping trip to Michaels to get some ideas for a visual display. As soon as I saw this shiny silverscrapbook, I knew I wanted to create a scrapbook to document the lessons I gave Ashley.
When I wasn’t learning new signs or teaching sign language to Ashley, I practiced signing conversations to my mom. Although my mom didn’t know sign language, she was extremelysupportive by simply sitting down and watching me sign to her. In this picture, I am signing “my name is Maida” to my mom.
This picture displays me having a simpleconversation with my mom in sign language. Inthis picture, I am signing “how are you?” to my mom. Since my mom didn’t know sign language, whenever I felt that I needed topractice sign language with someone, I wouldspeak and sign a question to my mom and she would speak her reply.
Since my project facilitator was very busy with work and her family, it became quite difficult to meet up with her sometimes. Nevertheless, westayed in contact through social networking sites. In this picture, I am emailing my project facilitator, Andy, about some questions I had about some signs that I had learned.
In this picture, I am emailing Andy to see if she has any suggestions about what my visual displays can be. Since I am not very artistic, I asked Andy for some advice on whatpossibilities I had for a visual display that didn’t consist of drawing or painting.
