Third-grade El Morro students who read a book about friendship topped off their lesson with a visit by guide dog trainers Nancy and Len Joseph.
They brought guide dogs in every stage of their training to the third grade school assembly. The volunteers and their puppies visited the third grade classrooms afterwards.
Their reading, “Rugy and Rosie,” involved the friendship between two dogs and their owner, who is a puppy raiser for guide dogs. The story introduces students to community service.
A visit from Guide Dogs for the Blind made the story come alive, third grade teacher Tamara Wong said. “Whenever teachers can make a connection between the curriculum and the students’ lives, the students have better comprehension and understanding of the material being presented.”Firebrand Media LLC wants comments that advance the discussion, and we need your help to accomplish this mission.
