These ASL Lesson Plans are for:
TEACHERS to save you hours of research. Everything is ready to go.
CHILDREN to have a fun, interactive, hands-on learning experience.

4 Tips when using the ASL lesson plans
- Start with a sign each day or each week, building sign vocabulary as you go.
- When teaching new vocabulary, SHOW the written word in English, SIGN the word in ASL, and SAY the word. Incorporating all three learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) is a powerful tool to engage students.
- Increase receptive and expressive vocabulary with the corresponding ASL flashcards, dice, and videos.
- Send home handouts for parents to learn and reinforce signs learned.
