Title 1A – Reading – Mrs. Larkin
My name is Cynthia Larkin and I am in my sixth year as Tumalo Community School’s Title 1A Reading Specialist. I enjoy helping kindergarten through third grade students accelerate their reading skills by working in small groups with specialized programs.
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, 95% and Reading Mastery. 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 time 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 !
