Candle: A Rhyme to Sign

Here’s a great rhyme to use in baby,
toddler, preschooler or any storytimes. It’s great for holiday story times,
birthday story time, or for any time you are talking about candles and light. First we’re going to learn
the American Sign Language sign CANDLE. Put up a pointer finger and with the other hand make a number five. Put the flame on top of the candle and make it flicker. You can do some really fun things with it, like blow out the candle, which
we’re going to do in this rhyme. Here’s how the rhyme goes: CANDLE CANDLE, burning bright, lighting up the darkest night. Thank you for your shining light. But with one puff, you’re out of sight.
