X in Sign Language

Learn how to sign X – almost at the end of the alphabet!

1. Hold one hand up, palm faces out. Take your pointer finger and bend it forward. Tuck the rest of the fingers into the palm of the hand.
2. This sign looks like you are holding up a crooked broken finger that needs an X-ray. X! Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • X isn’t a very common letter, so when doing learning to read games for kids you might need do some searching to find it! Look for it at the end of words such as box, fox, and sox. Read the book “Fox in Sox” together and sign X when you see it on the page.
  • X marks the spot! Hide a little treasure. Then draw a map of your backyard or neighborhood and mark with a big X where the treasure is. Help your child read the map and find the X. What will they find underneath. Practice exclaiming “X marks the spot!”

Transcript:
