Since I haven’t had any experience with learning American Sign Language, I thought it would be a good idea to establish a good foundation and start from the beginning. With that being said, I thought that exploring the alphabet would be a good place to start. I watched a few Youtube videos, and here are some that I found helpful:

I used this video to practice all of the letters with the “alphabet song”. That was a great way to test my speed and make sure I knew each letter!
This week, I decided to document my learning from this week by spelling my name:
My Plan for Next Week:
Next week, I would like to continue to focus on the basics. I am going to look for simple words that will help me with future phrases. Wish me luck!
