Interactive resources to teach kids ASL?
I'm a HOH mom of two Hearing kids, ages 3 and 5, and I'm currently without hearing aids. It's painfully obvious to me that I should have been working harder to teach my kids sign up until now, but alas, I've not been. I'm working with them to teach them more; my daughter loves trying to imitate the fingerspelled alphabet and my son loves to point around the room and ask what signs go with the different objects. But I haven't had regular signing practice in 15 years, and not much practice at all in the last 5. I'm a little rusty, and I'm curious what kind of resources for kids are out there.
I don't have a lot of money, I can't really invest in an expensive software program. Ideally, what I'd like is a web-based interactive program geared towards preschool-kindergarten aged kids. I've been googling, but after sifting through three pages worth of lots of extra stuff that I don't need, I'm growing frustrated. Thought I'd ask the awesome folks here at AD for advice!

They will let you "check out" videos or books by mail for learning ASL. They also have resources for children.
