Students read to dogs, via ZOOM

Megan N. Case, 25, teaches third grade at Gulfside Elementary School in Holiday, Florida, near Tarpon Springs. The school is closed due to the pandemic, and Ms. Case misses her students, as shown here.

But she's found a new way for her class to practice reading. Animals from the Alliance for Therapy Dogs can no longer visit students at school, so Ms. Case has arranged for her students to read to the dogs via ZOOM.

She surveyed students to see if any were interested in reading to dogs, and many signed up. Parents say it helps the children practice their reading more. One parent says her child now practices reading every day, so she'll be ready to read to the dog on Thursday.
