Read Naturally Encore
Read Naturally Encore develops fluency and phonics, supports vocabulary, and promotes comprehension using the powerful, research-based Read Naturally strategy. Students working in Encore use stories printed from blackline masters and audio CDs.
Read Naturally Encore enables a student to work on fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension at his or her own pace in an appropriate level of material. The student masters each story by reading along with a recording of a fluent reader and then practicing the story until he or she is able to read it accurately and reach his or her goal. The student gains confidence by tracking the progress from the initial reading to the final reading of each story.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN EACH ENCORE LEVEL
Each level of Read Naturally Encore includes the following:
- 24 high-interest, nonfiction stories with comprehension questions, in blackline master
- 12 audio CDs with two stories per CD: key words, definitions, stories, new expressive-rate read alongs, Spanish translations (in Sequenced levels 1.0–4.5), and phonics lessons and word lists (Phonics levels)

- Extra resources on our website: certificates in color, blackline masters for glossaries, crossword puzzles, additional graphs, and more!
