ASL Basics – Learn How to Sign the Days of the Week in American Sign Language


Hello, everyone! Today we are going to
learn the days of the week. Let’s learn the basics! If you’ve been finding these videos
helpful so far, please like and subscribe, and also you can hit that bell
notification and you’ll be alerted to when a new lesson goes up. Let me know in
the comments how long have you been learning sign language? With all of that
said, let’s go ahead and learn the days of the week. The days of the week are
actually pretty simple if you’re already familiar with the alphabet in ASL. If you
still need a refresher or if you need to learn the alphabet in ASL, I actually
have a previous video where I go over the ABCs in ASL, and you can get to that
video with the card above or in the link below. If you’re already familiar with
your alphabet, then we’re ready to learn the days of the week. We will be starting
off with everybody’s favorite day, Monday. Again if you’re familiar with the
alphabet in sign language, then we will just be making the handshape M, which is
like this, you turn your palm towards yourself, and you rotate it. M for Monday.
For Tuesday we will again be using the first letter of the name of the day, so
we will be making the handshape T rotate your palm, and rotate it. T for Tuesday.
And continuing with this pattern will be using W for Wednesday, and turn your palm
towards yourself and rotate. W for Wednesday. Thursday will actually be
using the first two letters in the name of the day, so we will be using T and H.
So t-h for Thursday. A couple other ways that you might be seeing this is, H for
Thursday, or t-h t-h for Thursday. Friday is really easy because you just make the F
handshape, rotate your palm towards yourself, and rotate,
Friday. Saturday starts with an S, so we’re gonna make the S handshape, rotate
your palm towards yourself, and rotate. S for Saturday. And we’ve made it to the
last day of the week, Sunday. Sunday will actually not be using the hand shape of
the letter, but will actually use open 5s, so you’ll start from the top and
go to the bottom, Sunday. Or another way that you’ll see Sunday signed, is like
this, Sunday. Okay, just as a quick review, let’s go
ahead and sign this together. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday,
Saturday, and Sunday. Good job! So now we are all finished with learning the days
of the week. There’s no quicker way to learn a language than to practice with
somebody, so hopefully you’re able to share this video with somebody, and
practice signing the days of the week together. If you happen to have missed
any of my previous lessons, you can get to the entire playlist of ASL Basics up
in the card, or in the link in the description below. Lastly I want to thank

language. Let me know in the comments section below,
