Paws for Reading
Wed, January 29, 2020 4:15 P.M.
We are delighted to host Paws for Reading, a program that gives children a chance to read out loud to a well-trained, certified therapy dog in order to improve their reading and communication skills. Since dogs don't correct mistakes - and they love to hear stories - , the pressure to "perform" is off, and reading becomes a fun, positive, and enjoyable experience. The unconditional love, and calming, non-judgmental presence of an animal can help a shy reader relax and simply enjoy reading.
This program is intended for 1st through 3rd graders. To ensure that each participant receives quality practice, sessions with Cooper are ten minutes long. You an sign up for your spot 10 minutes before the program begins. Space is limited; first come, first served.
