Books Come to Life at BES

Special thank you to Mr. Tony Bullock and Hunter  along with his daughter Kaylan and her puppy Rocket Man for spending the morning with the BES 4th grade.  We recently finished reading “Ellie’s Story” about a search and rescue dog.  The students were very interested in this book and the life of a search and rescue dog.  Mr. Bullock agreed to come to BES and show the students how a search dog works.  He was able to give the students some insight on how these dogs are trained, and students were able to put the information from the book we just read into a real-life context.  Reading is such a wonderful way for students to learn more about the world around them, and Mr. Bullock helped our students see how they could even become a trainer one day.
