This lesson is part of the following series:

Baby Sign Language: Everything You Need (11 lessons, $15.84)
Sing & Sign: Childrens Songs and Alphabet Songs (5 lessons, $5.94)

In this baby sign language video lesson, you will see three different versions of alphabet songs. The preview gives you an example of what each video segment will teach you.

The first segment is designed for children to practice their American Sign Language Alphabet. They can see the different hand shapes and sign and sing along with the song. We made the song slow enough for the child to be able to change and absorb each hand shape.

The second segment is designed to teach the sounds the letters make. Once you learn the sounds of the letters you can then start to put together words. You can ask your child what does C (showing the letter c and having them sound it out), A, T spell - you can sound it out together as you go.

The third segment teaches you the signs in the first alphabet song. At the end of this song I will go over how to make each sign.

Each song has a chapter marker so you will easily be able to find the particular song you like.

I hope you enjoy singing along to these songs!

I am a first grade teacher and I often encounter kids who aren't firm with their sounds. However, reviewing this is often boring to those who have mastered their sounds. This video and song gives me the "happy medium", helping those who still need to learn their sounds, but providing new and engaging material (sign language) for those who don't need the review. Can't wait to try it out!

I really like this, but I wish each song was on a video by itself so we could go straight to it.
And I wish I could get this on a DVD so I and Kids could watch it together.
I love the music, it's so fun.
Thanks Ruth Glenn

I thought this was great. I'm teaching my preschool class to sing and sign the alphabet song for their graduation ceremony. This is a great way to reinforce the sign language motions. I only gave it a 4 out of 5 just because the picture resolution isn't the greatest -especially when you do full screen-

I learned ASL in high school, but haven't used it much since then. This lesson was such a refresher, and is easy to remember, set to a song (original music by the author!). This lesson has inspired me to start using sign language with my toddler to further encourage his speech and communication. I can't wait to see how it goes!
