Our classes are every Monday for one hour each class. We cover a LOT of words in each class. They teach the words and corresponding signs and then we drill. We are called up front to "pop" quiz us. Below is Little Guy in one of our most recent classes doing the sign for friend. In that class we covered all types of professional people: nurse, doctor, lawyer, designer, computer programmer, teacher, principal, boss, firefighter, police officer.....
Teaching takes a lot of patience, but teaching sign takes a great deal of patience because of how important performing each sign correctly is to communicating within the deaf community.
I took this group photo for our yearbook. Two of our class members were absent. Each student is doing one of the signs we learned during that class. It is amazing to me that this group of kids (and moms) walk into the room each week and when we walk out we know a minimum of 30 new signs.
Little Guy adores his sign teachers and so do I. They don't tease me too much when I make the same mistake twice!
By far, our sign class is a highlight of our homeschool year!
