A visit from Lili Loveday

October 5, 2017 - Lili Loveday  visited Mrs. Fancher's second grade to give a presentation on people with special needs who are differently-abled. The students had to try to tie each others shoes with their eyes closed or fingers taped. They had to guess what was in a bag of objects by using only their sense of touch , and guess a classmate while being blindfolded to feel what it was like to be blind. The students learned sign language and listen to the voice of a deaf person, which was different  then what we are use to hearing, but we learned to not make fun of people who are different.  Instead we can treat them with respect and get to know them, just like you would any new friend.
