In October, all the 3rd graders here read the book "Rosie the Visiting Dog"- about a therapy dog.
Last year, my friend (who is a 3rd grade teacher) asked if we would come visit the school, so the kids could meet a real therapy dog.
We went and met with all the 3rd grade classes. And we had a blast!! 3rd Graders are so much fun!!! (and hilarious!)
We talked a little about being a therapy dog, then did a trick dog demo. Here's the video from last year: (We ended up doing this same presentation at 2 different schools.)
I was just asked if I could bring Jasmine back again this year! There's a whole new bunch of 3rd graders... ready to meet Jasmine the Therapy Dog! So we're going this Friday! I'll let you know how it goes!
