Frog in Sign Language

Learn how to sign frog and have some fun with this silly slippery creature!

1. Bring one hand up under your chin, fingers lightly curled in, top of the hand resting on the bottom of the chin.
2. Keeping the top of the hand connected to the chin, “hop” or flick your pointer finger, middle finger, and thumb forward.
3. This sign is reminiscent of a little frog hopping quickly forward. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips

  • For children, games are key to learning. This is especially true when they can move and grove as a part of the learning experience. Watch a few videos of frogs online and observe together how they move. We know they hop, but what else do they do (swim, rest and stay very still)? Practice moving like a frog in different ways and sign frog as you play.
  • Learn about the life cycle of a frog, from egg to tadpole, to full-grown. Talk together about the different ways the frog has to live in each stage of life.
