The 4th graders had special guests today. Bryce and Dove, from KSDS Assistance Dogs, came and shared information about their facility and the services that their dogs can provide for others. In reading, students read a story about a service dog named Ira, and the many things that a service dog needs to know. This was a great experience that tied in with our reading curriculum.
Since March is National Reading Month-start something NEW! Reading to kids is important in developing their language and cognitive skills, creativity, imagination, discipline, concentration, cultivates their life long love for reading and prepares them for academic success!
