Seltzer Pup Star Readers
This past September, I launched a new reading program at our school.
Called the Seltzer Pup Star Readers, 20 of our most exemplary students from grades 2-5 were selected to read to the adoptable dogs at City Dogs Cleveland.
Once a month, we walk over to the city kennel and read books to the dogs. Students select their own books and practice them at home. The goal is to increase the students’ confidence in reading aloud as well as helping the dogs have a positive experience while living in the kennel.
I am so very proud of the students in this program. I am so grateful to my fellow teachers here at Marion C. Seltzer as well as the staff and volunteers at City Dogs Cleveland who helped to make this dream of mine a reality.
