Fox in Sign Language

Learn how to sign fox and see what else you can learn about this little woodland creature.

1. First make the sign for the letter F (pointer finger and thumb connect to form a circle, the rest of your fingers are raised and slightly apart).
2. Place the circle created by thumb and pointer on your nose and twist back and forth a couple of times.
3. This sign looks like the fox’s nose and some whiskers. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips

  • Games for learning to read often start with phonics – and “fox” begins with the letter F! Point this out to your child and practice the sign together, emphasizing the beginning sound. You can say something like, “F is for fox! FFFFF-ox! Fox!”
  • Lots of children’s books star a fox – sometimes a sneaky one, sometimes a good one. Go to the library and find some books with a fox character. Read the story together and sign fox each time it appears on the page.

Fox! Make an F and twist it on his sneaky fox nose. Fox!
