Elementary language learning

Are you curious how a Deaf/hard of hearingĀ child can acquire two languages in an ASL-English bilingual classroom? Our language arts curriculum has been modified to include ASL. Currently, we have several stories, essays, and articles available in ASL and English, in each grade band. Both languages are equally represented by having both published within a screen for viewing and reviewing purposes. Our students are mesmerized by the story and are able to partake in a classroom discussion, practicing using academic ASL. We start the process at a young age! In this image, the teacher is showing a story in ASL/English, enabling our students to acquire both languages at their own pace with a follow-up classroom discussion for the enriched language learning process.
