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!
