ASK Angie ASL – FROZEN
FROZEN: The hit movie of the season: let’s take some time to learn some fun winter themed signs that also correlate with the movie. Starting with the word “frozen”, which is also the same sign as ice. For the word “princess” just draw a sash across your neck with the P and come down. If you’re signing the word “prince” it just comes straight across like you’re doing a sash. Angie also shows us how to how to sign the following words: kingdom, snow, winter, reindeer, sled, Christmas, tree, magic, right, wrong, good, bad, love, forgive, nice, glove, mittens, coat, hat, and fireplace. Signing is fun and a great way to communicate in a different language.
1. Remember that as the weather becomes cooler, it’s easier to allow your child to still communicate if they are wearing gloves vs. mittens. I know it sounds silly, but as a teacher, I see it every year where my students are limited on their communication abilities due to cooler weather. Parents tend to purchase the readily available mittens verses gloves. It is very difficult to fingerspell, or even want to sign, when your hands are cold.
