Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign new in ASL

  • Bring out some items that are new (a new crayon, pencil, sock, etc.) and some times that are old (empty box of cereal, an old toy, etc.). Ask your child to sort items that are new and old, and sign for each category.
  • Activities for children that teach stewardship of the earth are important! Encourage kids to give away or recycle items that are old. Each time they get something new, they can exchange it with something old. This keeps your home cleaner too, and more free from clutter.
