Signing Children’s Books: Piggies

By John Miller
Friday, January 18, 2019

This article is part of our “Signing Children’s Books” series, which highlights children’s books and pairs them with pre-built Signing Savvy word lists to help you get started with learning and signing the vocabulary in the book. Reading and literacy is so important. By sharing these pre-built word lists, we hope to cut down on prep time for families that are just beginning to learn ASL and hope you can find more comfort in sharing literacy with our young deaf children.

In the book Piggies, Audrey and Don Wood created a beautiful take on classic finger play. The illustrations show cute little pigs dancing and playing on the tips of hands. Hands covered in mittens, bubbles, and even mud! The pictures are so creative, your little ones will want to look at the photos for hours!

Extension Activities

The creators of the book have been nice enough to provide you access to illustrations for the kids to color and do activities of their own. Get free printables from the authors. Through Pinterest, you can also find many different fun and exciting Piggies learning activities to do with the children to extend their use of language and creativity.

I hope through the Piggies pre-built word list you will feel confident to share this story with your children.
