Reading and ASL

Every so often I have a student looking for reading ideas that incorporate American Sign Language. I am thrilled to report that the Illinois Service Resource Center has made available ASL Literacy Packets based on seven popular children's books. Each packet includes three literacy activities, a list of vocabulary words in which each word is defined and the sign is described, photographs showing the proper way to make each sign, and all reproducibles needed for the activities. Each packet can be viewed as an e-book or download as a PDF.

Literacy packets are available for the following titles:
  • A Fine Fine School by Sharon Creech
  • I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly by Mary Ann Hoberman
  • The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams
  • Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook by Michael Garland
  • Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
  • Read All About It by Laura & Jenna Bush
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
These look like useful resources. Check them out at ASL Literacy Packets.
