Use ASL in your Primary Program

Singing one primary song during the primary program using simplified ASL is always a hit!  Both with the congregation watching and the primary performing!

Check out this video demonstration (originally shared HERE on the PML FB group) for teaching I Feel My Savior’s Love using simplified ASL:

Ultimately, no visuals are needed.  Make sure to post the words like I do HERE.

ASL Notes

Here are my notes for the first verse that coincide with the video:
  • Feel: take your left hand and “feel” or make a small circle using your chest with your middle finger
  • Savior: left middle finger touches right palm then right middle finger touches left palm
  • Love: arms uncross, extend outward, palms up and move outward across chest
  • World: make 2 “W’s with your fingers and circle them.
  • Warms: Start low with hands and wiggle fingers up toward chin
  • Soul: “pull the string” with thumb and pointer fingers from the fist of your other hand.
  • See: take 2 fingers from each hand, touch your temples and draw a circle outward
  • Knows: touch temple with left hand
  • Follow: hitchhiker thumbs start at chest and go outward and off to the side
  • Give all my life to Him: (all) circle palms then touch (life) hitchhiker thumbs go upward from chest (give him) take hands as if giving a gift upward and outward
  • Feel: take your left hand and “feel” or make a small circle using your chest with your middle finger
    Savior: left middle finger touches right palm then right middle finger touches left palm
  • Love: arms uncross, extend outward, palms up and move outward across chest
  • Love: arms uncross, extend outward, palms up and move outward across chest
  • Freely: make an “ok: sign with both hands and cross them at chest and pull them away
  • Gives me: pull something down from the air, off to the side
Hopefully they make some sort of sense ;).  We’ll be learning more verses in a few weeks.
 
To review, add scarves to your signing!  It adds a wonderful element!  I have details on the scarves I use and love HERE.

  1. Love this! I am so excited because I really want to teach my kids an ASL song this year. I was wondering if you will teach them the ASL signs for the other verses or if you just teach them the first verse. Thank you for all of your wonderful ideas!

  2. Hi Unknown,

    Thank you for commenting! The videos on lds.org are a really wonderful resource but I've found them hard to learn (because I don't know sign language), let alone teach. Have you had success using them?

  3. I haven't haha just didn't know if you knew they were there. Luckily we have a darling mom in our ward who knows sign language and came to help teach. Thank heaven! Also I'm not sure why my name is showing up as unknown. Thanks for all you do on your blog. You are a singing time lifesaver. -emma

    1. Hi Maria!

      Whenever I teach sign language, I like to throw in scarves once the signs are learned. The kids just basically hold the scarves in one hand and as they do the signs, the scarves move around. It’s definitely not necessary or essential but just adds a little variety and another time to sing the song :). I hope that answers your question.

      ~Camille
