We’ve been using American Sign Language in our family for years. I learned ASL as a child and I worked as an interpreter during my late teens, which helped me to build a deep appreciation for the unique beauty of sign language. I’ve since found it to be a wonderful tool for helping kids (both deaf and hearing) to communicate.
While books and flashcards for ASL can be helpful, the very best way to learn ASL (I’ve found) is through video. Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite American Sign Language videos for homeschoolers! If you’re interested in adding ASL to your homeschooling curriculum this year, these resources are a great place to start!
