Monday, November 02, 2015

Tail Waggin' Tutors   4:30 PM - 6:30 PM  Children Services
Branch: Grantsville 
Come join us after school on the first and third Monday of each month and read to a friendly dog! Bring a favorite book with you or find a new favorite in the library.

Therapy Dogs International’s “Tail Waggin’ Tutors” program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won’t laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way. Over time, the child’s reading ability and confidence can improve because they are practicing their skills, which will make them enjoy reading even more.

No registration is required. Parents are asked to remain in the library while the child is reading with the dogs.

This program will not take place on days when the Garrett County school system is closed or closes early due to inclement weather.

This month we will have MacKenzie here with us for StoryTails: Children Reading to Dogs. This drop-in program is designed to help children develop confidence in reading.  Each child reads to a dog for about 15 minutes with the dog's handler sitting nearby to give reading assistance if necessary.  All dogs are certified by Therapy Dogs International. At the end of the reading session, each child will receive a bookmark with a picture of the dog that they read to.  This program provides a great opportunity for kids who need to work on reading skills and would like the opportunity to read to an animal.
