Sign Language Dictionary

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.

Red in Sign Language

Learn how to sign red – one of the many colors of the rainbow!

1. Take your pointer finger and place it just below your bottom lip.
2. Draw your finger down to the tip of your chin.
3. This sign looks like you are pointing out your red lips. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Have a red day! Wear red, eat red food, only color with red crayons… how many things can you come up with to use that are red? Practice the sign all day and have some fun!
  • Create a sign language lesson all about colors. Get the book “Cat’s Colors. Each page is brightly illustrated with color and you can sign the color as you read together.

Transcript:
Red! Your finger slides from your lips down your chin. Red! Because your lips are red. Red.
