Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign go in ASL
- Learning sign language is fun when there’s lots of movement involved! Play a modified game of Red Light-Green Light. Say, “Green Light! Go!” and sign go. When you say “Red Light! Stop!”, sign stop. Alternate back and forth using the signs each time. For the next level up, you can also sign red and green!
- Each time you need to transition to a new location, let your child know it is time to go, and use the sign to support the concept.
Go! Use your pointers and point them in the direction that you want to go. Go, go, go!
