I made this video for my ASL students, as we are only together online now, and I decided to share it publicly in case others may benefit from it.
Because I began learning ASL at age 21 rather than at birth, I like to point my students to Deaf language models. Here are two videos of Deaf people signing about COVID-19:
- Coronavirus PSA Symptoms, Prevention and Travel History – American Sign Language (ASL)
- A Message from the NAD About Coronavirus (COVID-19)
There are many more videos out there! Please learn what you can to prevent the spread and talk about it in whichever language you choose.
I woke up with this song in my head, so I Googled it and found this video. I’m so glad I did. I didn’t know the singer was related to Peter Capaldi, and I thought it was really sweet that his cousin acted in his video. It’s a very moving story and you have to watch it till the end to fully appreciate it— but I won’t tell you what it is, because you know, “Spoilers.”
Here comes Peter Cottontail / Hoppin’ down the bunny trail / Hippity hoppin’ Easter’s on its way!
