Wellington El VPK Learns Sign Language From WHS Seniors

Recently, fourth-year American Sign Language seniors from Wellington High School made an appearance in Cathy Eckstein’s VPK class at Wellington Elementary School. Carlie Niedzwiedzki and Adam Kratenstein came in and taught the young students the alphabet in sign language. The children also learned how to sign many different animals. During the year, the class learned a song in sign language, which they enjoyed performing for their families. The children enjoyed the seniors coming in and teaching them. Niedzwiedzki and Kratenstein made learning sign language fun and engaging. The children are still practicing ASL in class and will be performing a song at their VPK graduation.
