We Sign Videos

One of the great things about Signing Time (and there are many great things!) is that it uses real ASL vocabulary.  It uses real signs from a real language.  This means that there are great resources in addition to Signing Time that can be used to enhance language learning and communication.

One of the companies that also creates DVDs for kids with ASL vocabulary is We Sign.  A favorite in our house is the We Sign Christmas Carols DVD.  These are all songs we hear a lot this time of year so they are easy for kids to pick up.  Signing the words as they are sung also helps us to pay attention to the meaning of the songs.  It is also a way to add actions (which kids love!) to songs that we don't normally think of adding actions to!

Here, take a look!

The We Sign Christmas Carols DVD includes the following songs:
Silent Night (きようしこのよる)
The First Noel  (牧人ひつじを)
Away in a Manger (かいばのおけに)
O Little Town of Bethlehem (しずかにねむれる)
What Child Is This?
Joy To The World (もろびとこぞりて)
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (世のひと忘るな)
O Come, All Ye Faithful  (神の御子は)

Most of the songs from this DVD are also included in the Japanese/English Caroling Collection CD

(クリスマス ソング コレクション) and can be downloaded from  The book (sheet music) can be found here.
