First Puppy Dog Tales visit

We had our first visit as part of the Puppy Dog Tales children’s reading program today at Bryant Elementary School. Four 1st graders got to read to Jacee. The books read to her were No David by David Shannon, Go, Dog Go, by P.D. Eastman, and Elephants Cannot Dance and I Am Going, both by Mo Willems. The students get to pick the book they read to Jacee. One of the students could read perfectly, even while holding the book upside down so that Jacee could see the pictures. The other 3 students picked books that were slightly beyond their reading ability, and needed lots of coaching on how to pronounce many of the words. It should be fun watching their reading skills develop over the term.
