This set of five individual lessons will help you to teach you little one to sign to a variety of popular children's songs, including: 'Itsy Bitsy Spider,' 'Baa Baa Black Sheep,' 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,' 'Old MacDonald Had a Farm,' 'On Top of Spaghetti,' 'Row, Row, Row your Boat,' 'It's Raining, It's Pouring,' 'RED,' 'YELLOW,' 'GREEN,' and 'BLUE.'

Children love putting actions to songs, so why not teach them ASL signs to use with the songs? These lessons will take you through each song step-by-step and show you the different signs you can use when singing the songs.

In addition to these songs, you'll also learn several different alphabet songs (whether you're American and say Zee or Canadian and say Zed) - one that teaches what the letters sound like and one that teaches words that start with the letters.

For all of the songs, Laura will walk you through exactly how to make the correct signs.


Note: you are purchasing the right to download or access these video lessons online (through the links below). Unfortunately, we do not offer these lessons in a DVD format.

too much talking
~ nbaca

my baby got bored,and lost interest in the video,too much talking and the only thing that he sees is you, I have another video and he likes it there are kids in it doing the signs

l like it!
~ eunha

But it is not available to download. I tried many times, but it says FAIL.

Alphabet Sign Language
~ Alida

I saw this when I was looking for fun ways to teach my non-school age son and grandson. I have raved about it ever since I got it and it is doing what I cannot. All the while teaching me sign language of the Alphabet. I love this thank you.

Very catchy tune!
~ Kristine7

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!

My favourite of the series
~ Natalka

This lesson was so amazing!
I have been singing these songs to my daughter all week (it's been raining and we went on a trip to a farm as well :)
It's sooo nice to be able to put signs to the songs that we've been enjoying - And my dad used to sing me the spaghetti song when I was a little girl. Hopefully she can learn it before we go to visit him in a few months!

Thank you Laura!

Great, great stuff!
~ Dustin3539

Thanks for the info. Explained more simply and clearly than I have found anywhere else. Thanks again!

Alphabet video
~ Ruth2

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
