These are some of the ensuing comments: “This is lovely. It will be brilliant.” “It will make the loveliest signing course.” “Look at the useful contacts with the # symbols” “Everyone working in a school with deaf children in it should have one” “This is just utterly, utterly perfect. It’s exactly what we need in school.”
The book covers a multitude of school-based signs and is fully conversant with 21st centruy requirements. New signs include Skype, Snapchat, Facebook and Google. It also includes directional verbs, inflections, getting acquainted, activities and people vocabulary. School vocabulary beyond KS2 is included but it would be invaluable for people who work in primary or for secondary aged children. The signs are all divided into separate topics with a full index.
Add this heady mixture to the fact that the book is also available from amazon.co.uk on a print on demand basis (which means it can easily be updated) and on Kindle. What’s not to like? ‘
If there are pupils or classmates in your school who use signs in their everyday learning and communication then this book is for you.
