Train in Sign Language
Learn how to sign train in ASL (American Sign Language). Choo-choo!
- Hold one hand out in front of you. Press the pointer and middle fingers together and point them out. Tuck the remaining fingers into the palm.
- Make the same hand shape with the second hand. Brush the bottom of the pointer and middle fingers of the second hand on top of the pointer and middle finger on the first hand.
- This sign looks like your first hand is the tracks and your second hand is the train going down them. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.
Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign train in ASL
- Make a human train! Line up the children (or family members) and practice choo-chooing along. You can sign train before and after you move. This sign not only encourages creative movement, but a little cooperation as well.
- Signing for baby is fun when you use favorite objects… and kids just love trains! Get a toy train and have fun making little choo-choo noises as you play and sign.
Slide two fingers over your other two, like a train going down a track! Let’s see you sign train.
