It's about ASL... and me... and you.
Can you guess?
Probably not. Okay, I'll tell!

Isn't that exciting? I know, it is!
Set your calendars! Starting October 1st there will be a new ASL lesson for you every stinkin' day!
If you're not familiar with my style here are two of my previous videos you can check out.
I not only show you the sign, but will make sure you see exactly how to sign it and some variations of using that sign. In my second video I show you the sign for understand. I give 4 variations.
- I don't understand
- Do you understand?
- Yes, I understand
The fun part is you learn one sign, but by changing your facial expressions you can express four different things. Pretty sweet huh?
I think so.
Another thing you'll notice is I do not use my voice. Now, there may be a video here and there that will require that I use my voice, but when I'm teaching it won't be "on." You may have a hard time with that, and I get it, but it's really the best way to learn ASL. It's a way to immerse yourself.
I also won't be putting music to it because that could be distracting. Plus, you may miss out on all the lovely sounds I make (har har) when I sign or the children on the other side of the door. You wouldn't want that, now would you?
I didn't think so.
I will include practice sheets for the lessons as well. You've got to know how to put the signs together to actually make sentences. You can't just throw some signs around and call it good.
It's going to be fun and simple! There will be no sweating or worrying! There's no grade at the end, unless you want one.
Use #SignItUp to connect with me and others that are signing along. You can ask questions, make comments, let everyone know you're watching or practicing or anything else you'd like to say.
Are you as excited as I am?
