How To Learn Sign Language

“TRAIN SONG”-Baby Sign Language- ASL (Portland Oregon)


Hello! In my “Sign, Sing & Play” class
that I teach here in Portland Oregon we have just wrapped up a transportation
unit and we worked on TRAIN. We use trains a lot because toddlers love
trains and I just learned a new song that I taught in class today and I
wanted to teach it to my students but I figured I would put it on YouTube as well
in case anybody else is interested in learning this song. So there’s a lot of
good vocabulary in this song. The first one obviously is TRAIN: so this is the
track and these two fingers are the train and the fingers are just rolling
up and down the track There’s also WHEELS so just like it
looks like wheels going round and round. Also we have ROLLING. We’re going to
talk about an engine in the FRONT so you’re going to take your hand and show front- an engine in the front and a caboose in the BACK- so back. The little
train goes to the top of the hill so we’re going to sign UP and it goes very
SLOW so basically you’re just dragging your fingers like this showing slow and
it gets to the STOP- so one hand stops the other hand and then it goes back
down. So I think that’s all of the vocabulary in the song and I’m going to go ahead and sing it to you now- here we go there’s a little red train going down
the tracks look at those wheels go clackety-clack and the train wheels are
rolling rolling rolling rolling and the train wheels are rolling rolling right
along long. There’s an engine in front a
caboose in the back. Look at those wheels go clackety-clack and the train wheels
are rolling rolling rolling rolling and the train wheels are rolling rolling right
along. The little train goes to the top of the hill. It goes very slow but it
gets there still. It gets to the stop and it goes back down look at those wheels
go round and around. And the train wheels are rolling rolling rolling
rolling and the train wheels are rolling rolling right along. Thank you. I hope you
enjoyed it
