That’s Claire in the middle, undercover as an unremarkable kindergartener.

While her fellow kindergarteners were using generic hand motions like a bunch of… kindergarteners, Claire signed the entire show in American Sign Languageto surprise her two deaf parents.

Here’s her doing “Santa is His Name-O”.
