1. The Bee-Bot squares are designed for young deaf students as young as three-years-old. Teacher will make a simple mat using 4 colored squares.
2. The squares are color coded to help the students find the signs that show the ASL sign as well as a realistic photo of the command. The students will place the duplicate color squares on the color squares next to the mat..
3. As time goes on, the teacher will give the students the squares without color prompts to see if they can identify the ASL signs just by the symbol or a photograph.
4. It is amazing how much the deaf students love using the mat with the Bee-Bot.
helpful reinforcement activity.
Check out http://alpha-robotics.com/ to view my students using the Bee-Bot to learn their basic skills.The Bee-Bot is a great STEM activity that encourages problem solving.
If you don't have a bee-bot, you can still use the cards to help the students learn the essential American Sign Language signs by having them match the pictures with the signs.
