Join Us for Monthly Reading Rein-bow Book Club! This is a monthly book club where kids will have a chance to get cozy and enjoy a fun horse-related story and make a related craft. Some activities will use Horse Powered Reading strategies, though it should be noted this is not the same as a full HPR session®. Red, and sometimes her friends, will join in. Session will be led by a Certified Horse Powered Reading® Instructor.
January and February will be online only due to winter weather. March - June you can choose to join from the comfort of your home, or meet up with us at Hope Reins. These months may be adjusted if we have weather that would make it difficult for Red to meet with her friends for reading.
Craft supplies will be supplied onsite months. Suggested materials list and craft information will be emailed in advance for at-home crafting.
A book bag with a horse sticker book as well as craft supplies for January & February will be mailed/dropped off to your reader if you sign up for all six months by December 31, 2022!
What is Horse Powered Reading®?
During a Horse Powered Reading® or Math session, the horse and the child become partners in learning. The horse becomes the reading material or "book" students need to connect with. Without finding and making some connection with the text, it is easy to drift away or lose interest in a book. The horse becomes a metaphor for that connection. A variety of exercises and games are used to help kids connect.
Social-emotional issues, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns often get in the way of student learning .
Horse Powered Reading® can break through those challenges giving students a chance to learn or reinforce reading and other academic skills in the moment
