Thoughts

I used the ASL sign for “bee” in the Bumblebee, Bumblebee song, and everyone picked it up quickly! I was also able to use it in some of the later songs and In the Tall, Tall Grass, and people remembered it then, too.

A note about the books, I skipped a lot of pages and words in When Spring Comes. I used it mainly for the pictures and talked about spring arrivals.
