I am linking up again with Third in Hollywood for week Three of the TPT sellers challenge. This is a product I have actually been working on for while and this challenge gave me get the push to finish it. It is part 2 in a series of 3 ASL SUPERHERO Classroom posters.
I am so thrilled to be able to combine two of my favorite themes American Sign Language and SuperHeroes! The students in my classroom use American Sign Language to communicate. For many of them this is their first language and they are using it to learn written English. They LOVE having visual supports that include both languages. (and so do I)
Each letter has 3 coordinating cards with a picture, primary lined printed word and the ASL sign. Just a note, many words in ASL do not have a specific sign and instead are fingerspelled. This fingerspelling IS the sign for that word. Deaf children learn to spell (or often when learning, approximate the shapes of the letters) these words and often describe the word using classifiers (handshapes that represent the shape or movement of the object)
These cards are LARGE, 3 on an 8.5×11 page. I prefer them to be large so they can be easily seen in the classroom, however, if you do not have that kind of space, or you would like them smaller to be used in interactive vocabulary journals, you could print them 2-4 to a page and thus use the smaller versions.
Finally, this set includes 4×4 letter cards to be used as headers on your word wall
(or any other way you see fit).
I am loving the bright fun colors in this set and I can’t wait to put them up in my classroom.
