I think some of y'all want to rabbit punch me after yesterday's numbers. You're going to have to put on your big kid pants today because I've got MORE numbers for you today.
Did you miss out on yesterday's lesson? Don't start doing a victory dance now... you've got to go back and learn those numbers first! I'll wait here for you.
Now don't go running off! It's not too bad, I swear! I go into the signs with more detail than yesterday. Hopefully that helps you some more!

[wc_fa icon="exclamation-triangle" margin_left="" margin_right=""][/wc_fa] Something I didn't go over in the video is that with the 60's - 90's the numbers 61 - 65, 71 - 75, 81 - 85, and 91 - 95 are done in the same manner as 31, 41, 51, etc.
The number 6 then slide/hop over to the next number. 6 → 3 = 63.
- You learned numbers 20 - 29.
- Then 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100.
- Then 31 - 39 (etc)
- Doubles (33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99)
- 67- 69, 76- 79, 86- 89, 96 - 99
Try not to be overwhelmed.
If you're struggling with yesterday's numbers concentrate on those.
Then take each above bullet point, one at a time, and master that one before you move on to the next.
Numbers are a lot of fun once you get the hang of them.
If your fingers, hands, or arms are getting tired take a break!
Shake out your hands and arms, rub them if need be, just let them be relaxed for a while before you start up again.
Sounds funny huh? Signing isn't a sport, right? New signers can get burnt out quickly because your arm and hand muscles aren't used to working so hard.
Even interpreters have to take breaks and take good care of their arms and hands.
We even get massages to prevent injuries. Want to be an interpreter now? I bet!
Please, let me know which numbers are giving you a hard time and I'd love to help.
