ASL - Drinks

We counted to 900 in ASL! Wow!

Let's learn how to say some things to drink.

water - To do the sign for water, make the hand sign for the letter W, with your pointer, middle and ring fingers up, and your pinky and thumb held down, then touch your pointer finger to your chin.

milk - To say milk, hold your hand up in the air and then close your hand a few times into a fist, almost like you are milking a cow.

juice - For juice, you make the hand sign for the letter J, and then you just say what kind of juice you want before you make the J. So for orange juice, you put your fist up by your face and squeeze it a few times, almost like you are squeezing an orange and the juice is going into your mouth. And then make the letter J.

Here is a helpful video to show how these signs are done.
