New Zealand sign language week 2015

This week is New Zealand Sign Language Week.

Yesterday evening this tweet came through my feed:

So I clicked the link, downloaded the poster and put it on my fridge. I then quickly learnt how to sign my name (something I must admit that all my children could already do).

So what better way to start with a little bit of sign language than introducing myself. Here’s a quick video of me having a go! I don’t think I got it quite right, but I’m happy with it.

There are a lot of resources available on the New Zealand Sign Language Week page that you can use at home or in your classrooms.
