American Sign Language
Learn American Sign Language (ASL) through songs, games, books, and dramatic play! Imagine being able to tell your friend a secret from way across the playground or in the library, or ask your parents for more lemonade while your mouth is full of food, or tell your siblings a joke through a window or when you’re supposed to be going to sleep! With sign language you can also bring favorite characters to life, communicate without your voice, discover a new language, and learn about another culture. ASL is the language of the Deaf community in North America – but people who are not Deaf also use sign language and you can learn it along with the amazing teachers from Baby Fingers (not just for babies!).
