Ms. Kiel's 2nd Grade Class Has a Surprise Visitor
A special visitor brought literature and curriculum to life! And what a treat!!! Through Social Studies and the wonderful interactive Read-Alouds, the second grade has been studying positive relationships and both helping and supporting friends, family and community members. One of the books I read in my classroom was Looking Out for Sarah by Glenna Lang. It is a realistic fictional story based on a real little girl named Sarah and her guide dog, Perry. It follows them throughout a day in their lives. Then, my students turned around and there was a surprise waiting in store for them, Chloe, the Therapy Dalmatian!  Ms. Henn was too kind and brought her precious dog, Chloe, into the classes to introduce a working dog to the students and discuss how she works to help people in our community feel better. The students also learned how to approach a working dog and the proper ways to interact. We are grateful to have had this opportunity. Hopefully you will meet her soon.
