The Interpreter's Tapestry


E's Fingerspelling Games

This activity improves expressive and receptive fingerspelling skills. This came from a student of mine as a game to play while on trips.

  1. Find a deaf friend or fluent fingerspeller (or a few).
  2. Pick a category of proper nouns such as actors & actresses names, movie titles, book titles, college & university names, sports figures, states, captials, etc.
  3. Take turns fingerspelling names from the chosen category.
  4. The first person to repeat a name (missed someone else fingerspelling it) or to not be able to come up with another item in the category is "out."
  5. The last person left wins!
