Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign you in ASL
- Learning ASL is as simple as talking and signing with children about what they love to do! Ask questions such as, “Do you like to sing? (play, run, read, etc.”. Sign you and any other signs in the sentence you no. Young children can sign back yes or no, slightly older children can give you a sentence such as, “Yes, I like to sing!”, complete with signs.
- Encourage a sense of self by using the signs for you and me (or I) whenever you are talking about yourself and your child. For instance, “You can go first, and then me!”, or, “You like grapes and so do I!”
You. Use your pointer and point to the person you are talking to. You. I like signing with you!
