Description

Class Experience

In this course, your child will learn the basics of American Sign Language. This is a Part One of Three series of the course so please begin with this class if you are new to American Sign Language.
*This class will use English and American Sign Language*

During our 5-week course, your child will learn:

Week 1: Jan. 3rd
-The Alphabet
Your child will learn, express in sign, and use receptive skills to determine which letter is being signed during class. I will use slideshows and mini games to help students retain these letters. We will also practice fingerspelling each of our names. Students will be encouraged to practice their ABC’s each day with a friend, family member, or sibling. Students will also learn how to sign and recognize a basic introduction

Week 2: Jan. 10th
-Numbers 1-20
In our second week, your child will learn numbers 1-20 using proper hand parameters and learn why hand placement is so important when producing numbers. Students will be taught different phrases and be asked questions to answer in Sign Language while practicing their numbers.

Week 3: Jan 17th
-Emotions
In our third week, students will learn how to sign emotions and how to ask, “How are you today?” Students will practice signing different emotions as a response to practice expression and receptive skills. Students will learn why facial grammar is an important skill and grammatical feature in ASL

Week 4: Jan. 24th
-Colors and Basic Introductions
In our fourth week, students will learn all about colors and how to have basic introductions using phrases like,
“Are you hearing or Deaf?” 
“What is your favorite color?” 
“How old are you?”

Week 5: Jan. 31st
-Review Day
In our fifth and final week, we will review all that we have learned so far. There will be mini games and fun interactive ways to see how much students have retained in the past four weeks. This class is important in order to move on to Beginner Part 2!
Once completed, your child will receive a certificate showing they have completed Beginner American Sign Language Part 1/3!
I studied American Sign Language Interpreting in college and received my Bachelor's Degree through Northern Arizona University. I have been a sign language Interpreter in the K-12 setting for the past eight years. I am fluent and passionate about this beautiful language and Deaf culture. I also have experience teaching. So I figured why not merge the two together!
Students will be encouraged to practice at home with friends or family members. You can have your child demonstrate what they have learned by having them show you new signs from class. You can also ask questions and allow your child to answer in sign such as, "What is your favorite color?" Your student can answer in sign what their favorite color is.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will be using Google Slides and Kahoot to excite learners!
