Learn a Few New Signs for St. Patrick’s Day

Here we are at another holiday time! With St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, it’s a perfect time to work on some new ASL signs with your family. Holidays make it easy to focus on just a few new signs. And they help us to have plenty of opportunities to use those signs during a concentrated period of time. When we are able to use a sign regularly like this, we are much more likely to learn that sign permanently. So let’s learn a few new signs for St. Patrick’s Day!

Basic signs to use for St. Patrick’s Day

Of course, we should start by learning the sign for green

You could also learn the sign for gold if you read or talk about finding gold at the end of the rainbow. In fact, you can learn the signs for both find and rainbow too!
