Dog Readers at Elk Meadow Elementary

Every 6 weeks our grade level meets to discuss students and progress. Numerous second grade kiddos were brought up as making crazy gains in reading. We analyzed the data and the instruction, and then it was mentioned that many of these kids, with positive gains, had dog readers. For the first time, the instructional practice AND the use of dogs was credited for gains. NEVER in the history of the program has the reading data now included dog readers AND the direct correlation to positive impacts on reading scores. Holy cow!!!

THANK YOU ALL for giving us your time and for making our kids soar!
