Eyes Alive! Releases Nursery Rhymes

The FSDB Eyes Alive! Deaf Elementary Performing Arts Troupe is pleased to announce that their latest production, “Nursery Rhymes in American Sign Language” is now available to watch online.

Nursery rhymes are important for young children because they help language skills development. Both rhyme and rhythm help kids see and hear the sounds and syllables as words, which helps kids learn to read.

Rhythm and rhyme are evident in ASL in Eyes Alive’s newest production, with 14 vignettes performed by 15 young deaf elementary students!

Watch Eyes Alive! Nursery Rhymes in American Sign Language from the FSDB Video Library on Vimeo and be sure to share it with your family and friends.
