Task 3: Option 2

An activity that could be used in the classroom that involves encoding and decoding data that aligns with teaching lower years the spelling of simple words (e.g. CVC or CVCC words) could require the students being allocated charts that show the sign language symbols of each letter of the alphabet, as well as cards with 3 or 4 of the symbols lined up to spell out the simple word. The student would have to decode the sign language using the chart to decode the symbols to spell out the words in alphabet letters, and reveal the word.

The activity could be furthered by putting students into pairs or small groups, and having one student spell out the words using sign language and having the other student/s decode the word that is being spelt.
