This week Kentrell Martin, the author of the Shelly’s Adventures book series, came to visit The Newton School. Mr. Martin created the book, DVD, & online series to introduce students and parents to American Sign Language. He read his book, Shelley Goes to the Zoo, while our students learned more than 20 signs including “yes”, “no”, “ready”, “monkey”, “alligator” , the entire alphabet and how to applaud by signing (silently!). Mr. Martin then signed books and poster as a way to continue to practice and learn at home. Thank you for visiting Mr. Martin!
