Hand Signals

There is a great YouTube video set for more tactile learners (three videos). It teaches the use of hand signs to indicate the tunes. In the video you see this being taught to a large class of children. A couple of my students who had trouble reading did better when this was used. His tunes do not match exactly every single tune I use, but it is close enough, and I found this system very helpful for some. I used the signs in the video to teach from the text book linked below the video.
