In each of our My Smart Hands Level Classes we learn the ASL alphabet. We learn this as many of the signs stem from a letter hand shape. For example, the signs for “Water” uses the “W” hand shape. The sign for “Uncle” uses the “U” hand shape. One last example is “PLAY” uses two “Y” hands.
Many families comment that remembering signs is easier for them after they learn this great tool! Here is a video from Laura Berg, Founder of My Smart Hands, and her daughter. They will show you some memory tips to help with this learning.
