W in Sign Language

Learn how to sign W. It’s an easy one!

1. Hold up your pointer, middle, and ring fingers. Fold your pinky and thumb down into the palm, and thumb sits on top of the pinky.
2. This sign looks just like a W so it is easy to remember!

Teaching Tips:

  • When teaching sign language, starting with the alphabet is always a great idea. The letters often form the basis for other words (for instance, you use W to make the sign water!). Furthermore, teaching the ABCs in sign helps children learn to read and recite them too!
  • Write the letter W in large chalk letters on some pavement. Hand children a squirt bottle and have them get the W all wet by tracing the letter with the spray from the bottle. W is for wet! Sign W!
