6 The Adapted Dolch Word Lists Deaf children and hearing children do not learn the Dolch words the same way. To truly comprehend print, the student must sign the Dolch words using ASL concepts.

7 © Fairview Learning, 2002 I made a present for you. I made my bed. I made money. I made her happy. My brother made me do that.

8 © Fairview Learning, 2002 ^ OUT 3 refers to place refers to amount emphatic out The ^ (rooftop) alerts the learner that the word has multiple meanings. The 3 (number) tells the learner how many meanings are present.

9 © Fairview Learning, 2002 * go 5 Index fingers move out & down 5 to 0 Hand sweeps away Index fingers roll away from body fs The * alerts the learner that the word can be signed multiple ways, but all signs mean the same. The number indicates the number of signs presented.

10 © Fairview Learning, 2002 ! Put The ! alerts the learner that the handshape usuallly stays the same, but the motion, direction, and/or expression changes depending on context.

11 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Adapted Dolch Words Total Signs = 510 Preprimer Primer 1 st Grade 2 nd Grade 3 rd Grade Words Meanings Signs A hearing student will learn 40 Dolch words, but a Deaf student will learn 71 meanings along with 95 signs for those 40 words.

12 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Online Progress Reports Teachers and students can graph their progress for classroom displays, IEPs, and other reports. These graphs make progress VISUAL and MOTIVATING.

16 The Bridge Lists English phrases requiring American Sign Language (ASL) translation for understanding. Bridging - pointing out and emphasizing Bridge phrases to deaf students. Bridging when reading allows deaf students access to written English.

17 © Fairview Learning, 2002 [just about] almost Just has 4 signs: recently, exactly, only, fair. About has 2 signs: about and approximate. No combination of these signs makes sense to the visual linguistic system; therefore another sign, almost, is required and indicated by brackets [ ].

18 © Fairview Learning, 2002 [right over there] F off nose Right has 3 signs: correct, right as in a trial, and right as in turn right. Over has 5: over, over the top, finish, again and again, and cross over the fence. There has 2 signs which mean the same. No combination of these signs makes sense to the visual linguistic system; therefore another sign, F off the nose, is required and indicated by brackets [ ].

19 © Fairview Learning, 2002 How do I pretest? Bridge Lists Pretest individually. Select 10 cards from Preprimer deck. If correct, continue. After 5 incorrect responses, STOP. Graph, if appropriate. Group students according to list levels. Fun ways to teach include: Pictionary, Charades, Sentence Manipulation, Bridge Bowls Workbooks

22 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Phonemic Awareness Skilled deaf readers make use of phonological information. All of us have our own phonemic vocabularies, right or wrong. All readers possess a basic code to decode the printed word.

23 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Phonemic Awareness & Vowel Patterns CONSONANTSVOWELS b d f g h j k l m n p r s t v w z th wh ch sh Short Long _a_ a_e, ai, ay _e_ ee, ea, ey, _e _i_ i_e, igh, _y _o_ o_e, oa, _o, ow _u_ u_e, ew

24 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Why Phonemic Awareness and Patterns Work Seeing patterns in words takes advantage of M space, especially in very young children. igh –1 space, not 3 A 7-year-old child has 3 M spaces; therefore, only 1 space is occupied by igh and 2 are free for easier processing.

25 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Adapted Dolch Words, Bridge Lists, and Phonemic Awareness provide the FOUNDATION for reading print conceptually with comprehension. Literature-Based Instruction These tools make print materials accessible, relevant, and fun.

26 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Amelia Bedelia Put the lights out when you finish in the living room. (???) Various texts are utilized in trainings to demonstrate the application of the Adapted Dolch words, Bridge Lists, and Phonemic Awareness.

27 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Amelia Bedelia [Put the lights out] when you finish in the living room. For example, Put the lights out must be bridged to check for text comprehension.

28 © Fairview Learning, 2002 ASL Development Students sign personal stories to the ASL instructor. The ASL instructor retells the stories modeling proper ASL. Students then sign their stories again, implementing proper ASL structures. Students record and illustrate their stories to demonstrate progress. In trainings techniques are presented to develop student ASL skills with student signing samples.

29 © Fairview Learning, 2002 Spontaneous Written English During writing time, the student dictates and/or writes spontaneous and personal short stories with their teachers. These stories are translated into proper English. The student then copies and/or types the proper English version and illustrates the stories. Language Experience Folders are available for recording progress. In trainings techniques are presented to develop student writing skills with student writing samples.
