NEW! YouTube Channel to Support Readers at Home
Although How Dogs Help Kids Read and Succeed in the Classroom is able to make a great difference with increasing reading engagement and teaching children the tools they need to read at school, sometimes kids just don't have the level of support we'd like them to at home in order to practice developing skills.
That's why we have designed and launched the NEW How Dogs Help Kids YouTube Channel, which features a weekly video to reinforce and support each lesson within the program, while also providing FREE reading instruction and support for all kids at home.
In addition to the weekly featured video, we will be releasing read-alouds of favorite books we feature throughout the program, as well as Quick Literacy Tips for parents so they can continue to work with and support their children in reading and writing at home.
Part One of this series, Dozer in Space, is designed to support the 2nd grade program. This series features a little dog named Dozer who, as a doggy astronaut, travels to imaginary planets in his dreams. On each planet, with the help of Dr. Lori, he learns five Tricky Trouble Words (featured in the at-school program), as well as reading strategies and success principles to help him learn to believe in himself - and follow his dreams!
Part Two of this series, which will be launched in January, will be designed around supporting the 1st grade program (which begins in January in classrooms).

We look forward to seeing you again on YouTube very soon :-)
