American Sign Language <http://where.com/scott.net/asl/> -- Fingerspelling is a kind of sign language that deaf people use to communicate.  But it's also a fun way to practice your English spelling!  Each letter of the alphabet has a sign.  Use the dictionary to learn the signs.  Use the conerter to see how any word looks.  When you think you know the signs, try the fingerspelling quiz.   PROJECT: After you learn to "speak" and "read" using fingerspelling, try to communicate a word or sentence with a classmate.  Can you do it? (This is a great way to pass secret messages that others can't understand!)
