Auslan Fingerspelling Alphabet Flashcards

PDF | 13 pages|Grades: 1 - 6

A set of 26 flashcards to show how to represent the letters of the alphabet when fingerspelling in Auslan.

Use this teaching resource when learning how to fingerspell nouns and other words in Auslan (Australian Sign Language).

Print, cut and laminate these flashcards to use for whole class or small group activities.

Please note: The viewpoint shown on this poster is from the signer’s perspective looking directly at their hands. The view of the signer and the view of the reciprocant will differ. The images shown aim to give a broad understanding of the handshapes required to communicate letters of the alphabet. Some signs may differ according to area or region. We encourage you to cross-reference using resources within your local community.
