|Parent Involvement Plan|
My name is Cynthia Larkin and I am in my fourth year as Tumalo Community School’s Title 1A Reading Specialist. I absolutely LOVE my job reading with the Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students at Tumalo!
In Title 1 our goal is to help your child attain confidence in reading skills as quickly as possible to successfully participate in grade level reading. I also try to instill a love of reading so that every child understands the importance of reading as a lifelong skill.
Each day I will read with your child in a small group for approximately 25 minutes. During this intensive teaching time I use research-based direct instruction materials such as; Sound Partners, Road to the Code, Phonics for Reading, and My Sidewalks. Please be assured that your child will not miss any core instruction from their regular classroom teacher and core curriculum.
It is a top priority for me to work with you as a partner in your child’s learning. Throughout the year I will reach out to parents for a times to sit down and discuss their child’s reading progress. Also, please contact me at any time with questions or concerns. I am excited to be working as a member of the Tumalo Community School to help every child be successful in reading !
