Turn ordinary independent reading time into an exciting reading experience with real results. Read Naturally's One Minute Reader iPad App energizes students with exciting, short passages and cool progress graphs that students will want to show off. One Minute Reader utilizes the research-based Read Naturally Strategy to improve fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary.

  • Built‐in accountability for independent reading in school or at home.
  • Opportunities for students to email results to teachers or family.

Students...

  • Use innovative technology to improve fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
  • Expand knowledge base through reading nonfiction text.
  • Earn points for effort and performance.
  • Gain confidence by monitoring progress with computer-generated graphs.
  • Utilize audio support to learn words and improve expression.
  • Experience success and an improved attitude toward reading.

One Minute Reader iPad App accelerates reading achievement by combining the research-proven components of the Read Naturally Strategy: teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring. The reader works at his or her own pace in an appropriate level of material. This motivating app guides the reader through the steps. The reader masters a story by reading along with audio and then practicing the story until he or she can read it fluently and with comprehension. The program automatically tracks the reader's progress. The reader can print or email the story, the Story Summary (results from the story), and/or the Book Summary (results from the whole book).

One Minute Reader Steps

One Minute Reader iPad App Steps

  1. Select Story (Get Ready to Read)
    The reader taps the story he or she wants to read and thinks about what he or she might learn from it. Choosing the story deepens the reader’s investment in the material, and thinking of a prediction prepares the reader's mind for reading the story.
  2. Cold Read
    The reader reads the story for one minute and then taps the last word read when the bell sounds. A graph displays the reader’s cold-timing score, establishing a baseline for progress monitoring, the component of the Read Naturally Strategy that motivates the reader to improve.
  3. Read Along
    The reader reads along quietly with a recording of the story, typically three times. This step is the teacher-modeling component of the Read Naturally Strategy, which helps the reader learn new words and master others as well as learn proper pronunciation, expression, and phrasing.
  4. Read Alone
    The reader practices reading the story without audio support until able to read it accurately and with expression. This step is the repeated-reading component of the Read Naturally Strategy, which helps the reader improve fluency, master difficult words, and understand the story.
  5. Quick Quiz
    The reader answers questions about the story. Responding to the text holds the reader accountable for meaning, develops the ability to answer many types of questions, and provides information about how well the reader comprehends the story. The correct answers to the questions help to solve the book’s Joke Jumble.
  6. Story Summary 
    The reader reviews the results from completing the story, including a graph that shows how much the reader has improved since the cold read. 
  7. Crossword:
    The reader solves as many of the clues of the book's crossword puzzles as he or she wants to or is able to before moving on to the next story or book.

One Minute Reader for the iPad has six apps: one for each reading level E through 5. Each app includes five books with five nonfiction stories per book. The automated steps of the app are built around teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring.

What Customers Say About the One Minute Reader iPad App

"My son is dyslexic, and he loves the One Minute Reader program. The stories are topics that really interest him. It only takes a few minutes each day, and I have seen a significant improvement in his reading skills in just five months."

"My son actually begs me to use this program—he thinks it's fun to try to beat his score each time. He's having such a good time that he doesn't realize how much he's learning. It makes learning to read fun, which keeps him interested."
