ASL (American Sign Language) for Little Fingers: All About Me ASL (American Sign Language) for Little Fingers: All About Me - ASL for Little Fingers is a fun, play-based sign language class for younger children. Students will begin to learn the language of the Deaf community by developing a vocabulary for greetings, everyday objects and common phrases. We will watch short videos of a Deaf family demonstrating the signs, learn about Deaf culture, play games, and work with partners. Each quarter will include a biography of a famous deaf American, an introduction to poetry, fun phrases, a signed story, and more!
During first quarter, children will learn the ASL alphabet, how to introduce themselves, numbers, basic greetings, colors, calendar vocabulary, and question words in a fun setting. They will learn ask and answer simple questions like, What s your favorite color? or When is your birthday? They will hear a story about Alice Cogswell, the little girl who inspired Thomas Gallaudet travel to Europe to learn the best ways to teach deaf students.
ASL is an excellent second language choice for young children who are not ready for a foreign language with difficult writing, spelling, or challenging pronunciation. Penn State University research demonstrated that adding the visual and kinesthetic elements of ASL to verbal communication helped to enhance the vocabulary, spelling, and reading skills in hearing students. Students may join ASL for Little Fingers during any quarter. At the end of the year, students will perform for parents to showcase their learning. Topics in this year s class series include: About Me (1st quarter), My Family (2nd quarter), My Town (3rd quarter) and My Big Adventures (4th quarter)! There a $9.00 materials fee for an age-appropriate class book. Compass will have the book on the first day, and families should bring cash or check payable to Compass for the book.

Spanish 1 (Honors or On-Level) Spanish 1 (Honors or On-Level) - Get ready for a full year of beginner level high school Spanish! This is a conversation-focused program in which students will build their vocabulary quickly and learn essential grammar skills in Spanish. Vocabulary will include the alphabet, numbers, time, dates, seasons, school, free time activities/hobbies, likes/dislikes, personal descriptions, family relationships, emotions, food/restaurants, places/locations in town, and shopping/clothing. There will be a strong emphasis on competency using regular and irregular present tense verbs and common grammar concepts such as articles, pronouns, adjectives, and comparative phrases.
Class will be conducted primarily in Spanish and will focus on listening and speaking skills, asking and answering questions, and correct use of grammar. At home, students will be responsible for memorizing vocabulary and grammar, completing worksheets and written assignments, and watching both grammar instruction and language immersion videos.
Spanish I offers a substantive, full-credit experience taught at either an honors or on-level track. All students will register online for the same course. Students must indicate which level they want to study via e-mail by August 15. Once the course has begun, students may move down a level (from honors to on-level) at any time. However, once classes have started, students may not "bump up" a level. While all students will cover the same material at the same pace, honors students will be given homework that requires higher level reasoning and advanced application of various grammar skills.
Students should expect to spend at least 30-45 minutes per day, four times per week outside of class time to ensure success with this course.
Students must have access to a computer and internet service as computer-based videos and practice tools are essential to success with this program. In lieu of a purchased textbook, the instructor will provide all materials. A materials fee of $30.00 per student will be due payable to the instructor on the first day of class.
Quizzes, tests, and formative assessments will be given to all students at regular intervals to provide parents with sufficient feedback to assign a grade. Homeschool families may wish to count this course as a full credit in high school Spanish for purposes of a high school transcript.
