    Category: EventsPAWS to READ - Euchre

    Euchre1-smallPAWS to READ-Euchre
    Euchre and Barbara Green will be available on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
    All PAWS activities are held in the Children’s Room.
    Readers earn a stamp on a record card for every 15 minutes that they read to one of our dogs.  When he/she has earned 4 stamps, they will receive a “Pawsome Reader” tag to wear as a necklace or use as a zipper tag.  If readers complete a second card, they a “Pawsome Reader” dog tag.

    The theory is, that by reading out loud to the dog, who doesn’t judge how well the child reads, the child’s self consciousness disappears and she gains the confidence needed to become a better reader.
