Hello André!
Certainly games are needed to teach SignWriting to Deaf 4-year-olds.... Thank you for posting your PowerPoint docs. They are a good beginning and I am sure there will be help coming...

Have you visited our Games page?

Learn SignWriting with Games

There are more SignWriting Games to post on this web page… from French-Switzerland, Arizona, and other places…

PLUS… there is a video in French from France…

Maybe your teachers will want to view this video discussing how to teach SignWriting to Deaf children, by Juliette Dalle, in French and French Sign Language:

It is on this web page:

SignWriting in France

or go directly to the video at:

Therefore, I need your help. I’m hereby giving you examples of palm orientations and of a game. You will find attached a palm orientation (orientation de la paume) document and a game (jeu) document. The deaf child can learn palm orientations and can enjoy learning them with games. If you have some SW symbol materials for 4- and 5-year olds, would you be so kind as to email them to me privately? Then, I will give them to a Deaf teacher. Otherwise, would anybody be happy to volunteer their help for creating, developing and drawing SW symbols and (fun) games for 4- and 5-year olds?
