Read to a Therapy Dog @ Winstead Park
September 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm MDT
Join us at Winstead Park, 6150 W Northview St. on the 4th Thursday of every month, 4-5pm. Kids can read to a dog for 5-10 minutes and the dog will love it! No registration required.
What are the benefits of reading to a therapy dog? Children believe they are teaching dogs to read, but they are actually teaching themselves. With the focus on the dog, children feel less pressure or embarrassment about their reading skills. They have fun, build confidence, and increase their love of reading!
We recommend bringing a blanket for your group to sit on while you wait for your turn to read. A selection of books will be provided.
We will continute to hold this event at Windstead Park through the fall as long as the weather permits. Otherwise, the program will be moved inside to the Sagebrush Room.
