Rhymes & Fingerplays

Two Little Friends
hold up fingers as you go
Two little friends are better than one,
And three are better than two
And four are much better still
Just think! What four little friends can do!

Mr. Wiggle and Mr. Waggle
I got this finger play from King County Library System. There is a nice video on their website showing how to tell the story.

Music

Tea For Two by Jim Gill
In this song we make the letter T with our fingers and count from 2-5.
The More We Get Together by Raffi
Before we sing this song I show everyone the ASL signs for more, together, happy, and friend. We practice singing and using the signs slowly without music first and then add the music.
