Story 4

MY AUNT UNCLE DIVORCE. AUNT SHE-[index on the right] LOVE HIM-[index on the left]. not-WANT DIVORCE. SHE SAD, ANGRY, HURT-(over heart), GO BEDROOM CL:V-"lay down-toss and turn" CRY, CRY. she-ASK-me me-HELP-her FEEL BETTER. I HAPPY HELP-her. SHE good-FRIEND SHE. MY IDEA, SHE NEED FORGIVE HIM. STOP FEEL SORRY.

Note: The sign EXCUSE can be used to mean "forgive."
 


Note: The sign “HOW-MANY” doesn’t use the sign “HOW.” Also, “HOW-MANY” uses a furrowed brow and moves upward. The sign “MANY” uses a “nod of the head” and moves a bit forward.
These are three different signs:  HOW / MANY / HOW-MANY

Curriculum revisions:
Note: A better way to say "Who hurt your feelings?" would be to sign "Who insulted you?"  But since the intent of the lesson is to teach the signs HURT and FEEL, the sentence would be better if it was, "YOU FEEL PAIN WHERE?" (Where does it hurt?)
