Learn Auslan: Fingerspelling Names

Teach Starter Publishing
2 mins |

This video helps to teach children how to use fingerspelling to spell out the names of people in Auslan (Australian sign language).

Before you know it you’ll see your students signing their names to each other on the playground! While the majority of the signs in this video are Australia-wide, some signs may differ according to area or region. We encourage you to cross-reference using resources within your local community.
