Sign Language Dictionary

We are committed to providing resources for parents who value signing with their children. Our sign language dictionary includes over 400 common signs including the top starter sings for your baby. For each word, there is a video, diagram, and teaching notes to make learning new signs easy. Many of our signs include free downloadable ASL Flashcards to help reinforce the signs taught in our series.

Wednesday in Sign Language

Learn how to sign Wednesday. The middle of the week!

1. Make a W-shaped hand (pointer, middle, and pinky fingers extended, the remaining fingers tucked into the palm) and rotate the wrist so the palm is facing towards you.
2. Circle the W a few times.
3. W is for Wednesday and Wednesday comes around each week! Use this cue to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Get a little silly while teaching sign language. Have a wacky Wednesday! Dress in silly clothes, have dinner for breakfast and breakfast for lunch, and anything else you can dream up. Sign Wednesday (and silly!) while you giggle your way through the day.
  • Help slightly older children learn to read and spell the days of the week by finger spelling W-E-D-E-N-S-D-A-Y and then signing Wednesday. Do this with the other days of the week as well.
