H in Sign Language

Learn how to sign the letter H!

1. Bring one hand up about chest height. Extend the middle and pointer finger and press them together. Tuck the rest of the fingers into the palm. Keep the palm facing towards you.
2. This sign looks like the line that goes across an upper case H! Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Learn the alphabet in sign language and watch early literacy skills start to blossom! It can start as simply as singing the ABC’s to your baby and signings as you go. Children will begin to mimic back the signs when they are ready… quite possibly before you would expect them to!
  • While out running errands, go on an ABC hunt. Look out for chosen letters of the alphabet printed on street signs, store signs, and products you buy. For instance, if this trip is focusing on the letter H you would point out the letter when you spot it and reinforce it with the sign. Buying a bag of chips? Where is the letter H on the package?
