Imperatives and Sign Language

I am sure we can all agree that teaching grammar can be as dull as watching paint peel off a wall…. So i decided to try something a little different. The whole past week we have been focusing on imperatives and instructions. We have looked at all the traditional examples like rules and recipes this time i thought I would make things a little different by getting my boys to make presentations based around American Sign Language. The boys basically had to create presentation about making a number of different sign language signs for common phrases and teach the class how to do them. As a result we were able to kill two birds with one stone … with the boys being able to practice writing imperatives and at the same time learning how to sign 🙂 Great jobs
