Get your kids, especially reluctant readers, hooked on a series!
Today, September 16, is National Rock Collecting Day! We LOVE collecting rocks over here. Being located along the shores of Lake Michigan offer us many opportunities to find all sorts of fun rocks. To celebrate today, here are a few activity ideas to do with your kids!
This week for our Teaching Tip Tuesday, we are discussing the importance of modeling good reading to your child. As parents and teachers we are always telling kids that they should read, but if they don’t see US doing it, why would they be inspired to do so?
Summer is such an important time for kids and families, and it is the perfect opportunity to do some fun learning. Children who do not read during the summer months or have exposure to books experience the “summer slide” where their reading levels will dip. This does not mean that summertime reading needs to be work or boring! Summer reading can give children the chance to see how wonderful reading and learning can be.
Clancy’s Treats for Kids this week is perfect for your end of summer road trip!

Hello and welcome to Minna and the Canine Club’s blog! We are so glad you are here.
We believe that every child is a hero, and it is our hope is that our blog posts about our favorite dog characters (Minna, Blue, Maggie, and Clancy) will inspire kids and adults alike to be the best they can be. We love our dogs and we love books, so please join us in this adventure as we share some teaching tips and ideas, Minna’s recommended library books, Maggie’s Monday Message, Courage from Blue, and of course, Clancy’s favorite recipes for kids.
As Minna and the Canine Club would say, “Tails up, it’s time for an adventure!”
