The idea behind Dr. Joseph’s Fingerspelling Book came from my desire to make young children’s first encounter with spelling a fun experience.
The artist Anita Boyle's imaginative illustrations and captivating characters are the perfect attraction for first time readers to become engaged in a playful spelling experience.
The kinesthetic aspect of fingerspelling helps reinforce learning and provides another way to present spelling to students who might benefit from alternative learning styles. Many of the words listed in the book’s practice exercises are those that school districts have identified as competency words for first and second graders.
The book will help young spellers find joy in their first attempts to spell, and the book’s visual impact will keep children coming back to it again and again.
Experienced Kindergarten Teacher Sees Benefits of Fingerspelling
This book has reinforced for me the importance of including sign language in my classroom. Sign language provides another way for kids to connect with symbols as words and emerging readers need lots of different ways to experience language. You can see their brains working as they focus on making particular letters with their hands and their delight when they get it! This is good stuff and I will use it in my teaching from here on out.
