Leala Holcomb’s Early ASL Rhyming Play Leads to Hands Land Project

Leala Holcomb’s Early ASL Rhyming Play Leads to Hands Land Project

Tom and Leala

Tom: Just found an old home movie of me and Leala, showing us playing with ASL rhyming games when she was a toddler. This one shows two signing plays based on the English nursery rhymes “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Humpty Dumpty.” But as we described in our last blog post, Leala and her partners in Hands Land have taken this idea further and developed DVDs that just focus on ASL-based rhymes and rhythms.

HERE IS LINK to watch home movie of Tom and Leala’s sign play

Their Hands Land project just got a nice write-up on Mental Floss, featuring a video of Leala’s nephew Thoreau’s  sign play.

LIKE their Hands Land Facebook page. Last chance to donate to Hands Land’s Indiegogo campaign is February 6.
