Hello Valdenir Pinheiro!

Thank you for this question.

There are two issues ...learning ASL classifiers, and then learning how to write classifiers in SignWriting.

Regarding writing classifiers in SignWriting, we add a Classifier Marker, a Tension Symbol, under the classifier. This symbol combined with the handshape let's the reader know that it is a classifier. This is explained on page 184 and 185 in the Lessons in SignWriting Textbook. See 2 attached diagrams from the book:
