“Little Black a Pony” by Walter Farley is a great place to start!
For the past six years, Turning Point has provided copies of the book to first graders at Highland Park, a Title 1 school in Stillwater.
The students work really hard on their reading skills so they can come read to our horses and learn all about everything equine.
The Field Day is packed with fun as more than 150 First graders, parent chaperones and Turning Point volunteers rotate between 16 activity stations.
The important outcome is that teachers tell us every child has been reading at or above grade level by the end of the year since the program began. And parent involvement is also up as parents and grandparents spread the word about the magic of horses.
