Hi Valerie, and SW-List

looking for more teaching materials I found a forgotten folder with lots of
animated things - smile - 

This one would be a good "opener" for a section about facial expressions -
what do you think?

The idea behind this clip is to encourage little children to invent facial
expression - documents with SignWriting

All the best - and thanks again for your quick answer

Hi Stefan -
Thanks for this message...glad the attached ideas are helpful!

In this case I wanted to see if I could write it by computer, to see  
if I can add some of these to the ISWA later...

But yes, I have a scanner, although I do not have it hooked up all  
the time...

Handwriting is flexible!

In this case, it is good for you to see the size ratio of the symbols  
relating to the face so you can create your TrueType fonts along the  
same sizes...the real catch with these facial movements is to make  
the movement symbols small enough...and the small brush symbol can  
look like the first tongue in your sequence, so we have to be careful  
not to confuse those two symbols....I think the brushes should  
probably always be on the outside of the facial circle if possible  
for that very reason...but little arrows and touches are written on  
the face...

Val ;-)
