Substitution activities:

__________ YOU FINISH TOUCH YOU?  (Replace blank with places of interest). 
Note:  "FINISH TOUCH" means "have been to" or "have gone there before."


Notes:
A student asked me how to do the sign for "sign language." 
I showed her the sign for "SIGN/signing."  She asked why I didn't add the sign “language.”  I explained that we don't need to add the word "language" when discussing "signing" any more than we need to add the word "language" when we ask someone if they speak English.
Compare these two sentences:
1.  Do you speak English?
2.  Do you speak English language?
Most fluent English speakers would use the first version (with out adding the redundant word "language.")
It is an accepted fact that ASL is a language. 
Either of these two questions are typical ways to find out whether someone can sign:
We can ask, "YOU KNOW ASL?"
Or we could ask, "YOU SIGN?"

___ Finish-touch:  An ASL idiom that (when used as a question) means in English "Have you ever been to?" or "Have you ever gone to?"  When used as a statement it means "I have been there before" or "I have gone or visited that place before."
___ The sign "FANCY" is related to the sign "FINE" and looks like a larger version of "POLITE." See:
