ASL for the Song "Deep and Wide"

ASL for the Song "Deep and Wide"
Product Description
Kids love motion, and the signs for the song “Deep and Wide” help children literally feel the meaning. Their hands plunge deep to imitate what “going deep” means and hands move apart to explore the motion behind the word “wide.” Research credits movement with retention of meaning.

American Sign Language (ASL) is its own language with its own syntax. Translations are rendered from English words to ASL concepts. Usually, words like to, the, and is are not used in ASL. However, since this song is for children who are likely also learning English, a few of these often-omitted words have been retained for younger ASL signers who might find their omission awkward.

The lesson includes the English words translated to signs, hand-drawn pictures for the signs, as well as word descriptions by signs. A sample can be found in the Preview.
