5 Numbers and Survival Signs
This lesson does numbers 1-30 and some essential signs that will carry them throughout the rest of your class. The survival signs really give my students a sense of empowerment in my classes, and from this lesson on they know how to ask questions IN ASL.
Make sure that your students are using ASL to ask questions during your classes and they will quickly learn the visual language of the Deaf!
Depending on the age of your students, feel free to change the worksheet to say, “Age when you had your first date”
“$ in your wallet”
“people in family”
since this is a quiz that has NUMBERS I make sure to have the numbers written on the board and I point to the number that I am about to sign. (Point to number 7 and then sign SIXTEEN) This eliminates confusion and giving away any answers since they are supposed to be assessed on their understanding of the signs for the numbers.
The Powerpoints don’t have the actual signs. Rather, this is what I use in my classes as reference. If you don’t know the signs, then these PowerPoints won’t help
