Co-designed with Deaf children, these dual language (ASL-English) games target ASL handshape recognition and sign and print vocabulary learning!

This bundle includes 3 interactive penguin-themed games that encourage ASL handshape recognition, awareness of visual language patterns, and sign and print vocabulary learning - all important early language and literacy skills!

Endless Waddle: Players must help the penguin move through 3 lanes on an icefield and select one picture/text (from a choice of 3) that matches a target ASL handshape. Beware of ice holes!

Hungry Penguins: Penguins are standing along a shore and are waiting to be fed! But these penguins are picky eaters! They'll only eat fish whose picture/text matches the ASL handshape on their belly.

Memory Match: Test your ASL handshape knowledge with this game of memory and concentration. Build your memory skills while improving your sign vocabulary and/or your print vocabulary.

Hungry Penguins and Memory Match feature 2 gameplay options: Picture mode or Text mode supporting sign and/or print vocabulary learning and practice!
