Mrs. Robinson - Reading Specialist

Welcome to Reading!

As a reading specialist at Ottawa Elementary School, I work with small groups
of students in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary,
and reading comprehension in order to improve the reading skills of our
students.  My goal is to supplement and extend classroom teaching and 
work collaboratively with classroom teachers and administration to implement 
a quality reading program that is research-based and meets the needs of students.

Reading, and a love for reading, begins at home. These one-page parent tips 
from offer easy ways for parents to help kids become 
successful readers. Although the tips are divided by age, many of them 
can be used with children at various ages and stages and you can choose
the ones that work best for your child.
