Sign Language Clay Initials

This was such a fun and successful project.  First, I taught the kindies the sign language alphabet.  Each kid had a worksheet illustrating every letter.  We did the alphabet together, then they were allowed to practice their name or any other words they wanted on their own.  When they had practiced enough, each kid got a slab of clay, traced their hand on it and cut it out.  Their challenge: move the fingers in the correct position to create their sign language initial.  After these adorable pieces were fired the kids glazed using whatever colors they wanted.  They came out so cute!
