Unit 1 – HELLO Hello!

Achievement objectives

Curriculum link: levels 1 and 2 of The New Zealand Curriculum

In this unit, your students will learn about NZSL as a language, explore the differences between signed and spoken languages, learn to use the fingerspelling alphabet, and sign the numbers from one to 10.

Learning outcomes

Students will:

  • greet, farewell, and thank people and respond to others
  • fingerspell names
  • make use of visual prompts
  • sign the numbers from one to 10.

Success criteria

Two sets of assessment criteria are included. The first set identifies a model that can be used to assess whether the specific learning outcomes have been achieved.
