MES second grade students love reading to Shadow

Second grade students at Meadowview Elementary School enjoyed a special treat when Harriet Ray, Susan Johnston and Shadow came to read to their classrooms during Read Across America Week.  Shadow is a trained therapy dog who works with the Tail Wagging Tutors. She showed the students many of the tricks that she knows. Mrs. Ray explained to the students how Shadow has been trained to help people who may need a special friend to read with or talk to. Students enjoyed a Jack Tale that Mrs. Ray shared with them and the book Edwurd Fudwupper Fibbed Big that Mrs. Johnston read. Thank you so much to our special readers who shared their love of reading with us!
