Boots and Puddle
I love this picture so much, don’t you? On rainy days, I love to go outside with my rain boots and splash around in the puddles. Sometimes I get my paints a little wet, but it’s ok. Let’s learn the words for boots and puddles. Ready?
Boots = los botas
It sounds like – loss boat-uz
Puddle = el charco
Sounds like – el char-ko
Excellent job! To say boots in Sign Language we are going to make the sign for shoes (take your closed fists, knuckles facing out and knock them together) and we are going to add one hand coming up to the inside elbow and karate chopping it. So, to put it all together, two closed fists knocking together a few times then your dominant hand will open up and karate chop your arm on the inside of your elbow while the other hand remains in place.
To say puddle, we will make the “W” sign with our dominant hand and press that sign against the side of our chin. We will then take both of our hands and make a circle next to us, like we are making the shape of a puddle or a patch of water next to us.
