Lucy the reading dog 2016
Mrs. Ackenbom's Littles will continue our very special program that improves children's reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to an animal. In the new year, Lucy and her owner Ellen will continue to visit our classroom once a week to help our firsties be life-long readers who love books. If you have any questions or concerns about this program, please don't hesitate to contact me! Lucy and Ellen are even happy to meet with parents who want to be more familiar with them. Every time kids work through a difficult sentence by chunking and sounding out words, they get to have Lucy do a fun trick for them. That's what I call teamwork!
