Socks in Sign Language

Learn how to sign socks. Do you have some silly socks at home?

1. Extend the pointer finger of both hands and point them down. The rest of the fingers are tucked into each palm.
2. Slide your pointers up and down against one another.
3. Socks are fun to slip and slide in! And your pointer fingers are pointing down to them. Use this cue to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Socks are good to wear with shoes, but they’re also fun to craft with! Glue on googly eyes and hair and a mouth using craft materials to make your very own sock puppet. Give the sock puppet a name and sign sock.
  • Take the sock puppet and use it when learning the alphabet. Give one child the puppet and have the puppet say a letter. Then another child (or an adult) says, “The sock puppet says A!” Sign sock and A. After a few letters, switch roles so the person with the puppet becomes the signer.

Slide your fingers, pointing down at your socks. Socks. Sign socks!
