READING CIRCLES WITH THE LOVE DOGS – join a Reading Circle with your favorite Delta Society Pet Partner “Love Dog” and spend an hour reading a new story or book, learning about “your” dog and being a part of a Circle to encourage one another. There will be writing projects as well as creating our own stories.
READING WITH THE LOVE DOGS - it has been found that reading to a well-trained dog can not only improve literacy but inspire the child to continue reading on their own. Register to be paired with a Canine Literacy Mentor and spend several weeks reading with YOUR dog. This is a one-on-one opportunity and regstration in advance is required.
Sessions are held on Tuesdays at 1:00 – 2:00 pm at RISE.
