Hello Erika!
Congratulations again on your birthday, and also for working on research on SignWriting in Germany this June - That is very soon - Wow - And you will be bringing your family with you? That is great...

So have a wonderful day today - Here is a lovely card that was designed by Stefan years ago that says "Happy Birthday" in ASL - Stefan's cards are always so beautiful -

and Happy travels -

Val ;-)

I'll be in Osnabruck for most of June. I'm hoping to learn more about how the students' daily engagement with writing both DGS and German (and signed German) affects the way they think about and relate the different codes. It's exciting to get to observe a classroom in which SSW is so much a part of the curriculum! Thanks to Stefan for allowing me to visit!

Hello Stefan and Erika!

First, happy birthday to Erika - Have a wonderful day. You are very special to all of us…


Second, did you all know that we can now turn vertical writing into horizontal writing, in the new SignPuddle 2? There are two places in SignPuddle where this can be done now…In SignMail and in ColumnMaker. Here is the horizontal version of Stefan's message to Erika…:
