#32 Total Physical Response and learning the Alphabet - Sign it!

This lesson is for young learners and is a unique way to teach the alphabet, spelling and some basic vocabulary. What you do is get the students active by having them sign the letters of the alphabet!

Elementary students love acting and using their bodies and this facilitates learning. Play the powerpoint below and have the students sign each letter of the alphabet. If they get good, see if they can spell a word! Review the picture vocabulary as you go along.....Finally, see if they can sign the phrases at the end of the presentation -- like "I love you".

A great lesson which teaches more than just English!  

See the two sign language presentations here.  Sign Language 1  | Sign Language 2

Also, see the Best Alphabet Resources thread + the Best Tarheel Reader alphabet presentations
