Furry Tales Program for Elementary Students
Many of our Furry Tale participants have learning difficulties. Those who experience a deficiency with critical reading and comprehension learning can fall behind academically and develop self-esteem issues. By reading to a dog, fears of being judged are eliminated and the student comes to find reading an enjoyable experience.
Furry Tales builds excitement about reading by pairing one dog, one child and one book. Over the 12-week program reading skills are improved, giving the child a better chance of achieving acedemic success.
Because children want to participate in the Furry Tales Program it has provided an incentive for the child to practice positive classroom behavior.
