Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign wolf in ASL

  • Practice sign language with popular children’s stories. Read classics such as Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs. Each time the wolf appears in the story or the illustrations, sign wolf.
  • Gather several woodland creature toys (wolves, bears, deer, etc.). Have children create a woodland habitat using recycled materials and play with the animals, signing the names for whatever ones they know.
