In April, the students in Mrs. Schaaf’s class were visited by three therapy dogs: Charlie, Buttercup and Abner. School counselor, Lorrie Wojtkowiak, set up the visit through SPCA‘s “PAWS for Love” program.
During the visit, a shared reading occurred amongst the handlers, classroom teacher and school counselor. The visit ended with the students reading their recently completed How-To Books to their favorite dog.
Visits from therapy dogs have always been a favorable activity and students shared that they cannot wait until the next visit!
