The American Sign Language Handshape Puzzle Book features 54 different puzzles to help students learn, review, and strengthen their signing vocabulary. Inspired by a best-selling sign language dictionary, this unique workbook offers a variety of puzzles at easy, medium, and difficult levels.
Users can practice sign identification with Crossword and Word Search puzzles that have signs instead of words for clues. Easy puzzles show as few as six signs while advanced puzzles contain as many as 30 signs each. Some of the crossword puzzles provide spaces both across and down for the multiple meanings of many signs.
Handshape Order puzzles require users to identify the handshape of the sign in an illustration, then list the sign's meaning in English. Matching puzzles also challenge readers to find corresponding signs for English glosses. Solutions to Which One Doesn't Belong and Sign Description puzzles depend upon knowing the parameters of ASL signs - handshape, orientation, location and movement - to find which word in a list doesn't belong, and to write the English word for the described signs. The American Sign Language Handshape Puzzle Book is a new, different, and entertaining way to practice ASL that students of all ages are sure to enjoy.
