  2. Sign Language in the Classroom The use of sign language in the classroom is very important. It is beneficial to both the teachers and the students. It can help to limit disruptions and better the communication between teachers and students, especially those with limited verbal skills and/or hearing impairments.

  3. Why Should Teachers Incorporate Sign Language in the Classroom? Some students prefer to communicate through sign language. Some students require this accommodation to learn information being presented to them. Some students with hearing impairments need it in order to not miss information that is presented verbally.

  4. Why Should Teachers Incorporate Sign Language in the Classroom? It also adds a unique and silent facet to the classroom. It allows children, who aren’t hearing impaired, to express themselves in a way other than verbally. Some children will learn to fingerspell when signing, and it will promote their reading skills.

  5. Why Should Teachers Incorporate Sign Language in the Classroom? More children who are deaf and hard of hearing are entering regular education classrooms. If the teacher has some knowledge of sign language it will make the learning environment more friendly and inviting for those students.

  6. Why Should Teachers Incorporate Sign Language in the Classroom? It can help to eliminate distractions in the classroom if the teacher and all of the students can communicate using the same system. An example would be if a child needs to be excused to use the restroom, he/she could sign the motion for restroom. The teacher could sign back yes or no. There would be no verbal communication. Therefore, there would be less distractions for other children.

  20. How to Begin Incorporating Sign Language in Your Classroom If you are unsure of how to incorporate sign language into your classroom, begin slowly. You could incorporate one or two signs a week. You could also incorporate signs into lessons by finding signs that relate to your lesson. This would be a fun way to get kids to make meaningful connections between the lesson and a concept that is hands-on.
