Weekly Vocabulary
Prepared by Mrs. Marcella Harper, Ed.S./CSC, Teacher for Deaf/HH students
Foreword
Thanks to David’s mom, Maria, who gave me permission to share this information. David is an Hispanic
student with Downs Syndrome; he wears glasses and hearing aids. I first met him when he was a four year old preschool student served three days a week at Head Start. He also had some problems with ambulation and fine motor
skills. Although he had sufficient hearing to respond to verbal commands, his Individual Education Program (IEP)
Committee decided to begin introducing sign language vocabulary along with speech to give him some means of
expressing himself until he could master spoken words.
Initially, we taught him only 4-5 signs per month. Once he began kindergarten, in a self-contained classroom,
we began introducing 5 signs a week. The decision about what signs to introduce each week were driven largely by
school routines and basic curriculum. In October, he began transitioning into the regular kindergarten classroom
for gradually increasing periods of time. His Weekly Sign Language lessons became a resource for all of the
teachers working with him; these signs were used consistently by his speech language pathologist, his vision
impaired teacher, his special education teacher, and the paraprofessionals working with him.
After one year of instruction, David has an expressive vocabulary of over 100 signs. He consistently
identifies himself and classmates by their name signs; he identifies 24/26 upper and lower case letters of the
alphabet; he identifies 11/11 colors; and he consistently names numbers 0-10. He also expresses many other words
in sign language. He is beginning to vocalize two words at a time. So, now we are ready to help him transition to
spoken language, but at least he has some way to communicate while he is learning.
This document represents a highly individualized booklet, designed just for David. My hope is that you can
take the ideas represented here and adapt them or create your own for student/s who might need a jump start
with tactile communication.
