    Hi,
    I am taking an ASL class at the local college. I am to sign a Children's story 2-3 min. long. Any ideas...remember it is sign language one.
    Thanks,
    Chris :popcorn:

    I had to do this in my ASL 102 class... I picked "Green Eggs and Ham"...... I would NOT reccomend it, as the rhyming in English is impossible to do in ASL, and the story sounds really dumb without that rhyming.

    the itsy-bitsy spider.

    the only problem is that you need four hands. Two to do the hand movements for the song, and two to sign the words.

    Anything by Dr Seuss is probably going to be longer than 3-4 mins. I don't remmy the title, but a story that I did for one class involved a hat salesman and monkeys. It's more about gestures and classifiers than actual signs. Good luck with the assignment.
