Y in Sign Language

Learn how to sign the letter Y.

1. Hold one hand up, palm facing out. Extend the pinky and thumb straight out and tuck the remaining fingertips into the palm.
2. This sign looks like the top of the letter Y. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Crafts for children can help teach the alphabet. Make a Y out of popsicle sticks. Glue to a piece of paper and have your child trace it with her finger. The tactile reinforcement helps teach the letter. Signing and saying the letter offer additional learning modalities!
  • There are so many ABC books to be found. Children learning the alphabet can benefit from reading a variety of them and signing the letters on each page.
