Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign trail in ASL

  • Is there a trail near you? Go on a hike and follow a map or tree markings to stay on the trail. Practice the sign as you hike.
  • Create alphabet games for kids with a trail! Put a long piece of brown paper on the wall or a table and label all along it with letters in order A – Z. As children learn the sign for each letter, they can move a marker up the trail.
