Finger Play Fun Day: The Alphabet Song with Sign Language

Today is Finger Play Fun Day and we are doing a children's song that everyone knows - The Alphabet Song! 

But the reason I am featuring this well known  children's song is to emphasize the sign language that can be taught to children as they sing the song. 

Many children learn by doing an action with their body. Making finger signs for each letter helps them learn the alphabet that much quicker and easier.

For a chart of all the alphabet signs go to Deaf-Edge.com
or download Wise Owl Factory's FREE PDF for an alphabet chart.

Wise Owl Factory has also provided an alphabet/sign language chart plus other pages for creating an interesting words dictionary.
 
Music makes learning fun!

  2. I love the way you can sing with two hands! Thank you for the great and useful video. Did you know you can sing the alphabet song, Baa Baa Black Sheep, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star at the same time? They have the same tune, I am sure you know.

    1. Thanks for the kind words Carolyn! I tried singing it with one hand and couldn't do it! :)
