Fire Prevention Week

Dogs Help Kids Get Comfortable With Reading, Thanks to Area Volunteers

Service dogs in library

BARK dogs have been visiting our 6th graders in the library.  Their Language Arts Unit 2 is called:  Animal Allies.  Studies have shown that beginning readers are more comfortable reading out loud to dogs than to people. 

The dogs visit sixth graders who sit down and read to them.  The dog owners are teaching our students about the reading program as well as many other topics related to dog ownership. 

Students are able to ask questions and then they get to pet all of the dogs.  They have met Jet, a Golden Retriever, Violet, a Pit Bull and Labrador mix, Henry a Labrador, and Lady, a type of sheep dog.
