Hello, I never thought about using sign language while introducing alphabet letters; I LOVE the idea...but, please excuse my ignorance...besides learning "to sign" the alphabet; what would be the advantage? Again, Please excuse my ignorance... Later during the year, we talk about the 5 senses and read books about Helen Keller (sense of sight & hearing); so I know my students will already know about sign language; so please TELL my why I would want to teach them (and myself) sign language. Remember; I LOVE the idea. Our first letter (Ii) is this week. Thank you!
