A Dog of a Time

February 12, 2021

In wrapping up a nonfiction reading unit, Lauren McDonald’s second grade students at Riley Avenue Elementary School had the opportunity to meet Abraham and Lily from K-9 Comfort Dogs.

During the virtual session, the students learned more about service dogs and asked questions about training, what the dogs need to learn and whether they play games.

Learning about service dogs was just one part of the nonfiction unit. The second graders also gained knowledge about polar bears, penguins and Iditarod sled dogs.
