ANIMAL SIGNS FLASHCARDS: Auslan & New Zealand Sign Language (Let's Sign)

(0)
Lovely Early Years signs for: animal, bird, butterfly, cat, cow, deer, dog, donkey, duck, fish, fly, frog, horse, kangaroo, koala, kookaburra, owl, parrot, pig, possum, rabbit, shark, sheep, snake, spider, wombat. Colourful Flashcard format of illustrated animal pictures and sign graphics with written descriptions. Includes: Basic Handshape Key and Fingerspelling Alphabet. One sign per page - clear and simple – with appeal to learners of all abilities. Some signs have more than one version and the commonly used variations are included but, as with learning any language, the best way to learn is by face to face contact with native sign language users. The Let’s Sign resources are designed to support this. Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) are the sign languages of the deaf communities of Australia and New Zealand. Both have evolved from forms of British Sign Language (BSL) and together the three languages comprise the BANZSL language family. They share many of the same vocabulary items and structural features in addition to the use of the same two-handed fingerspelling alphabet. Because of these similarities, the Let’s Sign BSL resources of dictionaries, posters, flashcards, stickers and graphics have been of interest to learners of Auslan and NZSL. This includes people wishing to communicate within the Deaf community and also increasingly in the field of Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Baby Signing, where signs are used with spoken language to support communication and language development – known as Sign Supported English (SSE). Due to requests, this resource has been created using the most appropriate and commonly used versions of signs for Australian and New Zealand learners and we welcome your feedback in planning any future materials - cath@deafsign.com
