Lourdes - this is wonderful news. I am assuming this is a classroom of
hearing children? That is another fun experiment - to see if hearing
children would learn signing better by having reading material in
SignWriting - would they remember new signs longer? Maybe Sabrina can see
if they can sign what they see on the page, even if they don't know what it
