Make the most of your Read Naturally program by attending a seminar this spring or summer! These seminars are held throughout the country and are hosted by the nation's top Read Naturally experts. You will learn crucial information on how to start a new Read Naturally...

Most fluent readers don’t question the seemingly unnecessary b in doubt. They know it’s there, and they know how to read and spell the word. But in the interest of expanding students’ vocabularies and developing their spelling skills, it can be beneficial to teach that the b actually does serve a purpose.

Technology in the classroom continues to be a growing trend and is transforming the way students learn. Read Naturally is excited to share how we have transformed our programs to better fit the learning style of this new technologically savvy generation of students.

Congratulations to January Star Student Anthony M., a third grader at Angier Elementary in Angrier, NC!

When it comes to language, young children have a distinct advantage over the rest of the population. Their brains are far more receptive to it. Researchers believe that people are most able to easily learn their native language—as well as other languages—in the time before adolescence. How can educators support this window?

ReadNaturally.com Listed in Top 100 Educational Websites of 2015
The Internet is bursting with educational websites. It can be difficult to navigate this excess and find the sites that are really worth your time. For this reason, Homeschool.com compiles a yearly list of the top 100 educational websites. This list includes both homeschool-specific sites as well as the best sites for information and products related to math, reading, writing, science, and other content areas. We’re pleased to report that ReadNaturally.com is featured on the list as one of the top educational websites of 2015!

Picture yourself participating in a parent-teacher conference for one of your students. If you are a literacy specialist, a Title 1 teacher, or a special education teacher, it is always a bit awkward when the regular classroom teacher or the parent turns to you and says, “I don’t really know what Jamie does when he leaves class for reading intervention!” Even though regular classroom teachers and parents are usually involved in planning a student’s intervention, and they receive several formal reports about a student’s progress during the year, they may not necessarily be aware of what the student is doing day-to-day.

Read Naturally has been successfully implemented in thousands of schools across the United States and Canada. With the introduction of our web-based intervention program, Read Naturally Live, an increasing number of international schools are taking advantage of our research-proven, powerful strategy. In response to this new trend, we attended one of the largest educational technology events on the planet, the 2015 British Educational Training and Technology (BETT) Show.

Nothing says, “Welcome back from break!” like being faced with winter benchmark assessments. The recommended testing window is December 16 – February 6, so for many of you this task is in the near future. Our blog is full of great information about winter assessments.

Read Naturally, Inc. was born out of research. In 1989, a reading teacher named Candyce Ihnot conducted a study in her classroom for her master’s thesis. Candyce applied three research-based methods (teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring) in a simple set of steps in an attempt to improve her students’ reading fluency. Her approach proved to be highly effective and became the basis for the Read Naturally Strategy.
