About the Kaiserman JCC

Kindergarteners Learn to Read with Help from Therapy Dog
Published Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Once a week, the Kaiserman JCC Kindergarten class has a special visitor — Harley the dog. When Amy Foster, director of the Robert J. Wilf Preschool and Kindergarten, leads him inside the classroom, students come up to pet him and give him a hug. Harley, a certified therapy dog, is there so children can take turns reading to him. Research from the University of California, Davis Veterinary Medicine Extension has found that reading to dogs can build confidence in young readers, encouraging them to get more comfortable with reading aloud.
