Welcome to the American Sign Language Club at LMS! We have the Basic and the Advanced Sign Language Clubs sponsored by Cindy Spivey and Rita Turner.
In the Basic Sign Language Club, we learn the alphabet, colors, numbers, animals, and fingerspelling. Fingerspelling is an activity where the student practices spelling words using the alphabet in ASL. Example: cat, dog, apple, table, etc.
In the Advanced Sign Language Club, we learn school items, family names, food words, and conversational phrases. In the spring, the advanced club will have an opportunity to meet a deaf couple and practice signing to them. This is a wonderful way to include the community at LMS. The Memphis Library hosts a Santa time with a Signing Santa every December.
