Our family loves learning ASL (American Sign Language) together. I actually started classes to become an interpreter for the Deaf but decided to take a break from school until my children are older, I am a two under two survival after all. I think ASL is a fantastic language for children (and adults!) to learn.
We’ve had a lot of fun doing this on our own as well as printing a few out for our homeschool preschool group! It has been great teaching the kids sign language together.
Why should preschoolers learn ASL?
Like I said before, I think ASL is a great language for children to learn. According to this post from Educational Playcare there are some fantastic benefits for children who are learning ASL including:
- Up to a 12 IQ point increase
- Accelerated speech and emotional development
- Reinforcement of learning of educational concepts such as ABC’s, animals, and other specific themes
- Helps children remember words because there is muscle memory involved, and the more senses involved in learning, the greater memory retention the child will have
- Improves attentiveness to social gestures of others as well as of themselves
- Larger speaking vocabulary and ability to form longer sentences
- Earlier reading and larger reading vocabulary
In my personal experience, I found my son’s vocabulary exploded once I started my interpreter classes and I began signing with him every day. My daughter also started speaking and signing at a very young age. I really do think there is something about the muscle memory helping them to learn letters and words. But don’t take my word for it, try this fun alphabet match up game with your preschoolers today.
How to play this ASL alphabet match up game
This game does require the knowledge of the ASL alphabet. If you need some extra help with remembering the alphabet signs check out this post. To play the game, cut out the ASL alphabet signs and then have match them with the appropriate letter on the last two sheets. I recommend laminating the pieces so that they last longer!
I love our laminator from Amazon and I use for all kinds of busy binder sheets, learning activities, and crafts with my kids.
Some of our family’s favorite ASL resources from Amazon
My family absolutely loves Signing Time. It was also a top choice for our homeschool preschool group when a host had to cancel last minute. One of us could still host and just watch an episode of Signing Time. I feel a lot less guilty if my children have screen time because Signing Time is just so educational.
Signing Time has been one of our biggest resources for learning basic ASL. You will truly learn a lot from these DVDs.
These wooden ASL alphabet and number tiles are brilliant. They are wonderful for those starting on their ASL journey.
These ASL flashcards are great. They have all the basics including letters, numbers up to 20, and a lot of other basic vocabulary words.
These ASL blocks are also one of our favorites.
I have created some free printable coloring pages for ASL listed below but if you want to add to your resources this coloring book is also great. I love it for when we are out at restaurants or other places.
I’m a sucker for these twistable crayons. They great for on the go and they don’t get broken as much. Plus, the colors are super fun.
