Narrative. Watch Kelly explain her daily routine. Analysis. Identify the signs you already know in the video. Daily Routine. Ask a partner what he or she does daily.

Hi, what’s up? What do you do every day? My schedule varies each week. For example, after school on Mondays and Wednesdays, I work, but on Tuesdays and Thursdays I have gymnastics from 3 until 5. When practice is over I take off and go home. I eat dinner, study, then go to bed at 11:00. I’m always running around!

Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays Every signs are part of the when group of signs, so they come first in sentences. See Eyes on ASL #5 to review when signs. Every signs can be interpreted as “every” or as “on” interchangeably, but don’t use the sign during with them. Every signs are made using the handshape for the day of the week, moving it down as if through each week on a calendar.

Around (time)

Ask a partner what time he/she does the following activities. Answer the question. When done, switch roles and repeat. 1. What time do you wake up every day? 2. What time do you eat breakfast? 3. When do you go to ASL class? 4. When do you work? 5. What time do you get ready every morning? 6. What time do you want to get up every day?

To use

Closed captioning means that the captions are programmed into the original material and must be turned on to work. Open captions are always present on the screen and cannot be turned off. The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) has lobbied Congress to have captioning offered on television, movie screens, and other locations accessible to the public (including on the internet). Since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) passed in 1990, captioning is now common on most TV shows & commercials. This benefits Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing people. Did you know it is relatively easy to caption your own video using widely available computer video editing programs?
