We celebrated New Zealand Sign Language at our BookSeekers meeting this month – so much fun!
We were very lucky to have Erich from the New Zealand Deaf Association come along to teach us some simple sign language that we can use everyday.
Besides learning some basic signs like hello, thank-you, what and where, we also learnt to finger spell our own names. If you would like to learn how to finger spell check out the NZ Deaf Association for some great instructions.
We finished up with a game of hang-man but with a difference. We had to finger spell our letters so there was no talking. I pretty hard task at times but we had a lot of fun trying.
Check out our photos.
Come along to our next meeting: Thursday 14th June at 4pm.
