Paws to Read
Thursday, October 6th from 3:15-4:15
The Bright Spot Reading Buddy Program is designed to help readers on all levels. All children benefit from reading aloud to practice their fluency and further strengthen their confidence in reading. The canine reading buddy provides a gentle, non-threatening, comforting listener.
Sign up for a 20 minute session on the first Thursday of the month between 3:15-4:15 PM with canine reading buddy, Scout. Scout and his handler, Meg, are a certified therapy dog team through the Bright Spot Reading Buddy Program (www.bright-spot.org). Children bring a book or two to read while caregiver remains on-site. For children in grades K-6.
