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.

Weekend in Sign Language

Learn how to sign weekend – a favorite time of the week for most people!

1. First sign week by sliding one pointer finger on your first across the tilted flat palm of the other hand.
2. Then change the pointer finger to a flat hand and brush it down over the fingertips of the second hand.

Teaching Tips:

  • For teachers: Send Kindergarten learning games home on the weekend. Choose simple ones that reinforce what you are doing in class. Assign a special “weekend games” backpack to go out to students to enjoy.
  • When students return to school ask, “What did you play this weekend?” and encourage children to sign and say what they did.

Transcript:
Weekend. Sign week. Your finger crossing your palm shows the whole week. Then drop your hand to show the end. Weekend. Show me weekend. Nice job!
