Mrs. B. uses sign language in class A LOT and there are some really good reasons for it. Here are some of those reasons:

Research shows that using signs helps students...

  1. become faster readers and better spellers.
  2. understand brand new math concepts.
  3. make important connections in their brains.

Here is Mrs. B.'s favorite quote:

"At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book -- that string of confused, alien ciphers -- shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets: at that moment, whole universes opened up. You become, irrevocably, a reader." -Alberto Manguel
