Tips on correctly Signing Items in a Room:
1.To sign a room, sign from the door perspective
2.Be sure you have transitions from item to item
Use a building feature (corner, door) or the most recent item (table, couch); then show the
new item going from the last one (“place” the new item in space)
3.Classifier requirement (3)- these help you show shape, size, and
location in the room
Label at least 3 items with a (CL) for your test, to show you plan to sign
them with a classifier (examples on p.3
of SN Level 2 book)
***Done? Have your room draft out and ready- work on
improving it (I will sign an example today)
