Passing it On!

Our first graders enjoyed a special treat during E-Time this morning as they were introduced to the wonders of sign language by none other than our very own fourth grade signers!  If you have been following our blog for very long, you may remember that we have a group of fourth graders who have been exploring the intricacies of sign language over the last several weeks.  On Friday, they had the opportunity to pass on their newly developed skills as they shared some of what they have learned with a group of very excited, innately curious first grade learners.  I was inspired as I watched these young educators patiently model correct finger position and meaningful facial expression to this eager group of learners.  Not only was everyone having a great time, but both groups ended the day feeling excited about their learning and proud of what they had accomplished.
