Reading To Dogs Provides Out Loud Reading Practice
Reading out loud is a very important part of practicing because being able to hear yourself helps you catch your mistakes, something that isn’t possible when you read silently to yourself. I used to practice reading to my parents each night, but every time I made a mistake, they corrected me. They thought they were helping, but that actually made me feel worse.
Reading to dogs like Peanut, helps you build your confidence…and as a dyslexic I know that’s one of the biggest challenges we face. So join me and the dogs at Big Dog Ranch Rescue to practice your reading. It truly helps you overcome your fears (I got up in front of 300 people to present Let’s Get Booking to a group of investors this past March and won!…so I know what I’m talking about).
As a dyslexic, one of my greatest fears is reading in class. Most people don’t like speaking in front of groups of people, so you can imagine how scary reading in front of 300 people when you don’t read well. Being called upon to read in class isn’t practice. That’s for sure. It’s very stressful. Reading aloud to dogs makes me feel much better about my reading.
Come join me…I would love to meet you when you sign up to read to one of the great dogs at Big Dog Ranch!
