E in Sign Language

Learn how to sign the letter E in ASL (American Sign Language).

1. Bring on hand up about shoulder height. The palm faces out and your pinky, ring finger, middle finger and pointer finger all curl down into the palm. The thumb is tucked in sideways so that all the other fingers rest along its side.
2. This sign looks a little like and egg (e for egg!) lying on its side. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign the letter E in ASL

  • Kids learning the alphabet love to make concrete connections between letters and their environment. Teach your child the sound for the letter e – both the short and long vowel sounds. Go on an “e” hunt and find objects around the house that begin with e. Sign E each time you find one!
  • Read a simple picture book together and point to the letter e when you see it one each page.
