One of my most popular printable packs, after the Daily Routine Printable, is my ASL Flashcards pack. That one was created for a few reasons. One of them being that sign language was one of the first ways I was able to communicate with my autistic daughter. Another being that I’ve always felt that sign language is a great way to help babies with communication. Because of that, I wanted to create a new printable ASL flashcards set but this time to use primarily with my toddler. These flashcards would also work nicely with my old ASL flashcards pack and any of my free printables for autistic children.
This set comes with the full alphabet, numbers 1-9, and an extra card for the sign for “more” (one of the first that Squeaker learned). I will have more ASL printable flashcards in the very near future as this has become a project of mine.
The ASL Printable Flashcards in Action
The flashcards were designed to be used in a few ways. The main purpose, of course, is to learn the letters of the alphabet.
After printing (I recommend printing on cardstock), cut each letter and hand symbol out. But, if you’re going to use these as flashcards, cut across not down. Use a gluestick or tape to affix the two sides together. And you can either go over the letters or use the flashcards to spell things. Like a name:
Squeaker was pretty interested in learning how to form letters with her hand, so we worked on that for a bit while she had breakfast.
Another way to use these, if you’d rather not use them as double sided, is to cut them in half and use them to create a matching game.
However you decide to use them is really up to you!
