In a unique approach to improving literacy, primary teachers from Spencer Elementary School are exploring the power of stuffed animals to help students learn. These cuddly companions will act as “reading buddies” for the students, the goal being to improve their reading competency and reduce anxiety about reading aloud in class. “A lot of our students don’t have much confidence in their reading abilities,” said Hollie Ware-Jaye, assistant principal at Spencer. “We hope that having a stuffed animal to read to will help them become more successful and teach them to take more risks.”
