For the month of February, we learned some basic sign language. We were blessed to have a great volunteer, Mr. Paul, to come and teach us. Mr. Paul is currently studying sign language in conjunction with his job and was eager to share what he has learned.
We learned the manual alphabet and many common words such as colors, numbers, greetings and other words and phrases useful in conversation. We also learned how to sign important words such as Jesus and pray. The children enjoyed practicing finger-spelling their names.
The adults were just as interested and eager to learn as the children (if not more so!) and we as a family have continued learning and practicing sign language.
I apologize for not having pictures - we took lots of videos but no still photos! Here are some of the signs we learned:
