Landon Sharp is one of four students in Lincoln Intermediate Unit No. 12's deaf and hard-of-hearing class who are performing nursery rhymes for this year's film project.

Every other year, kindergarten through third grade students silently act out various stories on camera and the school's older students, grades four through 12, narrate them in sign language. This is the project's 10th anniversary and the school's fifth film.

Apart from learning new stories, the project gives students an opportunity to expand their sign language vocabulary and get a glimpse of the filmmaking process, Educational Interpreter Tanya Chmilewski said.
