Motorcycle in Sign Language

Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign motorcycle in ASL

  • Find some toy representations of things that go (motorcycle, boat, bike, car, truck). Line them up and have fun practicing the sign for each. For an extension of this activity, sign the name of one of the objects and encourage your child to point to the one you signed.
  • Activities for children that encourage movement help get the wiggles out and encourage physical development. Encourage children to move from one spot to the next like they are riding a motorcycle. What sounds would there be? How fast would they move?
