Come Sign With Us Book

Now, the new, completely revised Come Sign With Us offers more follow-up activities, including many in context, to teach children sign language. The second edition of this fun, fully illustrated activities manual features more than 300 line drawings of both adults and children signing familiar words, phrases, and sentences using American Sign Language (ASL) signs in English word order. Twenty lively lessons each introduce ten selected "Target Vocabulary" words in a format familiar and exciting to children, including holidays, pets, cars and trucks, and more. All signs have equivalent words listed in both English and Spanish.

Come Sign With Us shows how to form each sign exactly, and also presents the origins of ASL, interesting facts about deafness, and how people live in the Deaf community. Used with reading and grammar studies, the sign language learned from this book can help children improve their vocabulary retention and reading comprehension.
