show you signs related to school, specifically the school building. Are you
ready? if you’re looking for one sign in particular, you can go to this video’s description, and there i have a list of all the signs with the time stamps, so
you know where to find the sign. School. This is the handshape: school.
The movement is clap twice: school building. building. here’s this handshape:
