The purpose of this book is to engage the learner of the American language with more than just their eyes and ears. The Hands to Spell-Read-Write series brings hands-on-learning to the American language by utilizing American Sign Language (ASL) Manual Alphabet to learn to spell new words. Once the spelling of a word is memorized, then the ability to read and write it becomes easier for the learner. Hands-on-learning has been proven countless times to be the superior way of learning anything and research has shown that utilizing the ASL Manual Alphabet and the use of ASL/Signed Exact English (SEE) signs to learn and spell new words has been very affective by providing the learner with a visual and kinesthetic/tactile representation of a word. The goal of this simple workbook is to help teach the spelling of the Pre-primer Dolch sight words. For each word, the activities are: 1. Color the letters at the top of the page. 2. Learn the spelling in ASL Manual Alphabet. 3. Trace the word on the different font types: Bubble, dotted manuscript, and dotted cursive. 4. Use the Braille Alphabet to write the word in Braille. 5. Check the box in front of dictionary after you have looked up the word and learned its meaning. Do the same for the ASL/SEE sign, and for teaching someone how to spell the word using the ASL Manual Alphabet. 6. Practice writing the word. Try to fill this area with the word as many times as you can. 7. Make up a sentence using the word, then write it. Spelling quizzes are placed throughout.
