On Wednesday morning, a group of students from Kristen Hansen’s American Sign Language (ASL) class at Lapeer West High School paid a visit to Mayfield Elementary. Mrs. Schabel’s third graders and Mrs. Forgione’s first graders were were excited about the opportunity to learn from the older students.
The students put a lot of time and effort into the creation of an ASL kit to accompany some of the young students’ favorite storybooks. The kit included a student-produced video along with worksheets and flash cards for use in the classroom.
In the video, the students demonstrated how to sign various vocabulary words, including many words used in the stories.
Thank you to all the students and staff members who made this awesome experience possible.
