I will be happy to respond to your request. If you're not in a huge within the next 24 hours...I will ask some of our students to
generate that list of 'words' and those simple sentences for you in
SignWriting. Monday morning I get to work with eight 5th graders....I'm sure
one of them would be willing to type that out for you. I'll send it to you
via email.
