Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum Testimonials

Testimonials about the
Mutt-i-grees
® Curriculum:

  • There has been a new surge of enthusiasm in my office over the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum. I'm amazed and pleased that we have excitement over an SEL [social and emotional learning] curriculum and am anticipating the roll-out.  -Arkansas

  • I love this! Every teacher should use this! -Connecticut

  • The teachers and the kids love Mutt-i-grees®! -Connecticut

  • Two of my staff members and I reviewed the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum over the Thanksgiving break and the consensus is "It's GREAT!!" Our next step will be to do the pilot in several classrooms during the next two weeks. Can't wait to see how the students interact with the curriculum. This is very exciting indeed! -Arkansas

  • The Mutt-i-grees® curriculum is a big hit. We are piloting the lessons in several classrooms. Teachers love it and kids love it!!  -Kentucky

  • Mutt-i-grees® has been like a butterfly – it touches everyone in the community. -Kentucky

  • Overall the reviews have been stellar with both my staff (school-based mental health case managers, building counselors, and speech therapists) and classroom and pre-K teachers loving it! -Arkansas

  • A parent stopped me in the hallway – her child was so excited about the Mutt-i-grees® lesson, she wanted to hear all about it! -California

  • In general, the teachers and principal really like the authenticity of using dogs to which all children can relate and they like the organization of lessons, book lists, activities, and use of plush dogs. Some of my staff want to use real dogs in upcoming lessons. There is much excitement about implementing the program and I already have teachers that want to implement the curriculum when it gets rolled out!  -Arkansas

  • The teachers report that the [Mutt-i-grees®] stuffed animals relax and calm the children. The Mutt-i-grees® program is very insightful into all ages and stages of child development. -Kentucky

  • The students in my first grade class gained empathy towards the animals that carried over to their classmates. -Kentucky

  • This curriculum is going to help our special needs children, but we are going to use it in the regular classrooms as well. It's incredible. -Missouri

  • We thought we had a balanced curriculum but we now know we have to add this missing piece – emotional and social learning. Our teachers can’t wait. -California
