College students teach kids to read


She's already landed a job with Chateaugay Central School.

Recently she helped Sam and Sadie Robinson act out the book "Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog" at an open house for the center.

Sadie played the pigeon, who had a hot dog. Sam assumed the role of a duckling, determined to find out what it tasted like.

Eventually, the duckling's pestering prevailed when the pigeon split the hot dog in two.

Afterward, Sam read a story he helped illustrate.

"I've seen so much growth in them from this program," Mrs. Robinson said. "They've gotten better with their reading skills, and this keeps them active when school is out."

Her children were initially upset upon learning they'd be taking classes in the summer, but that quickly changed.

"Now they are disappointed they are done," Mrs. Robinson said.
