Best ABC Stories in ASL?

By January 27, 2008

Follow me on:

My teen had to do an ABC story in sign language (a story using the sign language alphabet) at his deaf school. He came to me for help, but I have no experience doing ABC stories in ASL. So, I turned to YouTube for help. There, I found plenty of ABC stories in ASL. Some of them are listed below. Which one do you think is the best one?

Despite my pleas, he would not agree to do his ABC story on video for About.com. He did however, agree to let me post the written version (I did not help write it) of his ABC Story, "Deaf Club:"

  1. Open Door

  2. Enter

  3. Group

  4. Deaf

  5. Environment

  6. Look

  7. Umm

  8. Deaf

  9. Imagine

  10. Jerry

  11. Perfect

  12. Camera

  13. Memory

  14. See

  15. Nothing

  16. People

  17. Picture (Wall)

  18. Reason

  19. Put on the wall

  20. Tan

  21. Paint

  22. See

  23. Weird

  24. Scratch

  25. Shine

  26. Writing

(story continued with 1-5 numbers)

  1. Agree

  2. Look

  3. Heard

  4. Noisy

  5. Finish

ABC stories are neat. You may want to list one handshape stories, too. Jehanne at http://www.jehanne.wordpress.com did many of them (Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Memorial’s Day) and they are adorable, too.
