I will teach the subjects of Science and Beginner ASL (simultaneously with hand signs and voice) for this one-time course. It will include focusing on the Letter of the Day: "O" and O is for Owl/letter recognition. We will review color recognition and visually identify and count numbers 1-10. In order to follow the owl theme, we will learn facts and information on owls, their diets, identify owls' sounds and what an owl pellet is. We'll explore what a zoologist does and why their jobs are...
This class is taught in English.
To introduce/get an understanding of Deaf culture and American Sign Language; to know there are different types of scientists/what a Zoologist does; What an owl pellet is/how to dissect one/what owl pellets can teach us about their diets and the food chain; How to make scientific observations using the 5 Senses; Learn/strengthen the visual recognition and phonics sound for the letter "O"; Learn basic facts about owls in general; Strengthen conversational skills/turn-taking when speaking in class/being able to focus and engage for an extended period of time; Strengthen motor skills; Strengthen listening skills/following directions.
Practice the words we use in class! The saying goes: If you don't use it (ASL), you'll lose it! Consistency will be the key ingredient to success in learning American Sign Language. (If you are more interested in the owl pellet than the sign language, then no homework is necessary for you.
I will ask questions throughout class. This is not only to engage them, but to also see how interested and focused they are on the content. I may ask questions about a story we just read to work on reading/comprehension skills. I do not believe in grading at the preschool level. If the progress is not as much as I anticipate, I will take that as a hint that I need to re-assess my lesson plans and teaching methods to enhance my content and reach the students more successfully.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
