Thursday in Sign Language:

Learn how to sign Thursday. Is there anything your family always does on a Thursday?

1. To sign Thursday, you fingerspell the first two letters.
2. T: Make a fist and tuck the thumb up between the pointer and middle finger.
3. H: Hold the pointer and middle finger out and press them together. Tuck the rest of the fingers into the palm. Rotate the wrist so the palm is facing you.
4. T and H are the first two letters of Thursday! Use this cue to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Learning for kids is about making connections. TH is a digraph – or two letters together that make one sound. When we use the TH together to sign Thursday we are also using the beginning sound in the word! Point this out to older children who are learning letter sounds and combinations.
  • Does your family or classroom have a weekly routine? Talk about it and support it with the sign. For instance, “On Thursdays we _______.”
