Once at this website, click on the sign language games link. There are a total of 6 games to play (so this is the most extensive of the sites I’ve recommended so far). You can play for free, or for a nominal fee you can add a picture of your child or student, so that they will see themselves pop up in different places while playing the game(s). Children can learn the manual alphabet (and are shown an object that begins with that letter - which is a plus), and how to count in American Sign Language up to the number 20. What is nice about these two games is that when the game finishes showing the first letter or number, it goes right on to the next one without the student/child having to click. So children can just watch and sign along.
The other four games are great practice activities, they are called “What is this letter?”, “What is this sign?”, “What is this color sign?” and “What is this shape sign?.” In each game they will either show you the sign and you have to select the right letter, number, color or shape, or they will show you the letter, number, color or shape, and you have to select the right sign from three choices. It is great fun and excellent practice.
My only wish for this site is that there currently isn’t a game for colors or shapes where they actually teach you the signs, like they already have for the alphabet and numbers. So if you don’t already know your color and shape signs, you have to try to figure them out as you go along. An added bonus to the site is that for $3 (as of 4/6/10) you can download another game for one week called Signing in the Park. By perusing the demos, this is very cute and you can learn a lot of other great signs. They are American Sign Language signs, but not correct ASL grammar. Although the testimonials state otherwise, the demo shows them sign “where, baby” instead of “baby, where”. Overall, an excellent site that you could actually spend some time at with great practice activities!
