We are committed to providing resources for parents who value signing with their children. Our sign language dictionary includes over 400 common signs including the top starter sings for your baby. For each word, there is a video, diagram, and teaching notes to make learning new signs easy. Many of our signs include free downloadable ASL Flashcards to help reinforce the signs taught in our series.

O in Sign Language

Learn how to sign the letter O!

1. Hold one hand up at about shoulder height and connect all five fingertips together.
2. This sign looks just like the letter it represents – O! Use the visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • O is for owl! Have your child draw an owl and make to big letter Os for eyes. Practice signing O!
  • Offer a variety of tactile alphabet activities for kids when learning the ABCs. For instance, take a piece of sand paper and place it under a piece of regular white paper. Give your child a crayon and have him practice writing the letter O several times. The bumpy sandpaper underneath will offer tactile feedback, giving a physical reinforcement of the letter shape! Follow up with practicing the sign.
