Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign snow in ASL

  • Make a snow scene! Use cotton balls and stretch them out. Glue them to construction paper to make snow on the ground, then add whatever you’d like to the picture (kids playing, wild animals, etc.). Talk about your snowy scene and practice signing snow as you go.
  • Learning for kids is all about being hands on! When it snows, go outside and observe the snowflakes. Catch some on some black construction paper and observe under a magnifying glass. What do you see?
