Learn how to sign rollerskate in ASL (American Sign Language)! Just like with practicing sign language, if you practice rollerskating it gets easier!

  1. Hold both hands in front of you with the pointer and middle finger extended and crooked in a little bit. Fold the other fingers into the palm of the hand.
  2. Alternate pushing the hands forward and back.
  3. The pointer and middle finger show the wheels and the moving hands show the movement your legs make when you skate. Use this visual to help you
    remember the sign.
