Signing Fingers at the Temple B'nai Abraham Early School Camp
Thursday, July 19, 2012 • 2:13pm
The campers of The Early School Camp of Temple B’nai Abraham enjoy themed -weekly activities this summer. Recently it was “Beach Baby” week, with each day having an activity set against the backdrop of a seashore premise. Throughout the school year and summer months Barbara Warter, co-founder of Signing Fingers, LLC and B’nai Abraham member, brings her program of learning American Sign Language(ASL) basics to The Early School. Through Signing Fingers, the students learn the beauty of ASL through music, art, drama, literature and movement. For this beach-themed week one of the activities was when Barbara read and signed the story of Just Grandma and Me by Mayer Mercer. Using her iPad to present this story of a day at the seaside with Grandma, Barbara was able to engage the campers in signing the story’s key beach words with her. Shown with Barbara, decked out in her beach attire, are Early School campers who are displaying their signing skills.
