ASL Series II Lesson 2: Farm Animals

Sign Word Description
chicken Place a right “g” hand at the mouth (this is the sign for “bird). Then place tips of the “g” hand into the upturned palm of the left hand. Note: It is the second half of the sign that makes the sign specific to “chicken,” as a chicken is a bird that pecks.
cow Touch the right temple with the thumb of a “Y” sign to illustrate a horn.
dog Snap your fingers, hand at your side. Here, pup!
goat To show the beard and horn of a goat, touch the right “S” hand to the chin. Then move it upward to just in front of the forehead, changing to a “V” hand.

mouse Gently brush the nose twice with a right “D” hand.
pig Tap the chin twice with the back of a right “P” hand.
