ASL American Sign Language Tales and Games for Kids #3- Leash Lane for Windows Only
The ASL Tales and Games for Kids CD series follows Paws, the signing dog, and his friends as they explore their neighborhood, Pawstown, USA. Each piece of software contains 3 community-focused stories and 10 games. Neighborhood children are deaf, hard of hearing, hearing, or multiply disabled, and represent different ethnic groups. Signing video and/or audio are options for accessing information. Recommended for ages 3-8. Leash Lane focuses on events that take place on one street in Pawstown. The stories are original and written to promote good English literacy, while simultaneously teaching important aspects of ASL. Each story can be viewed continuously, without the child needing to manipulate the mouse, or the child can control the story himself. Elizabeth Sorkin, a deaf actress, signs each sentence dressed as Paws, the signing dog. Any word that is colored blue can be seen individually signed. Each story has three games, which reinforce skills in literacy, spelling, visual perception, mathematics, categorization, memory, computer skills, and creativity.
