ASL - Vegetables

We just learned how to say some fruits in ASL!

Let's learn how to say some vegetables.

carrot - Hold your left hand out flat in the B hand shape, and your right hand in a fist, with your thumb sticking out. Wave your thumb down a few times on the front of your flat B hand, almost like you are peeling a carrot.

corn - Close all your fingers except your index finger. With that finger pointed out, hold the side of your finger up on your upper lip and twist your finger a few times.
You can also use two hands in front of you, like you are holding a corn on the cob and twist them a few times.

pea - Put your left hand in front of you with just your index finger pointing to the right. Using the index finger of your right hand, tap along your left finger, almost like you are counting peas in a pod.

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