ASL Literacy Activities by Motion Light Lab

ASL Literacy Activities

In light of COVID-19, we are staying home and figuring out resources for our children. Here, we are putting together activities, ideas, videos to support your child's learning at home. A major focus of our activities will be based off on our award-winning VL2 Storybook Apps. We are making our apps available for free, at specific times. Please keep checking in for updates.
