My favorite American Sign Language video series — Signing Time — is now available to stream online at Amazon, plus they have a neat looking new video, Bible Fun. Get the full story at the Signing Time web site.
Also, I enjoy receiving an email each week with an ASL sign to review or learn with the kids. The way these videos are made is so engaging and fun! Rachel Coleman was a singer before having a deaf daughter, so she now uses that beautiful voice and songwriting skill to make delightful songs to teach the signs. The computer animations and interviews with lots of children actually showing the sign are well done, too.
Adults and kids of all ages can learn and enjoy Signing Time videos. It’s amazing to see how much my 1- and 2-year-olds have had to say once they knew how to sign with me! And older brother and I enjoyed learning along with the babies. I highly recommend them to my friends who ask about learning ASL with their kids.
Here’s an example of the weekly email:
