Nathalia A. is our April Star of the Month winner. Nathalia is a sixth-grade student at Lutie Lewis Coates Elementary. She was nominated for the incredible progress she has made in Read Naturally Live and the increased confidence she now has. After two years Nathalia is now reading on grade level, which is an increase of three grade levels. Her teacher Jennette Leiva had shared the following with us about Nathalia's success.

We are very pleased to announce the winners of our first Read Live School of the Year Award! The award recognizes schools whose students have substantially improved their reading skills using the Read Live program during the 2017-2018 school year.

Congratulations to Hunter S. for being awarded the Read Naturally March Star of the Month Award. Hunter is a Sophomore student attending iForward, an online charter school with Grantsburg Wisconsin School District.

I’ve long believed that when students work in Read Naturally Live or Read Naturally Encore, we should address their phonics needs as well as improve their reading fluency. Actually, improving phonics skills is foundational to increasing fluency.

Read Naturally is pleased to announce the 2018 Read Live School of the Year Award to recognize schools whose students have substantially improved their reading skills using the Read Live program. Enter today for a chance to win $2000 for your school.

Read Naturally programs are inherently motivating. Students know how well they are performing based on their goals and progress monitoring graphs. The desire to see these goals and graphs improve is enough to motivate most students to put forth their best effort. Still, a little external recognition doesn’t hurt.

Congratulations Elijah J. from Nashville, TN for being named our February Star of the Month. Elijah is a second-grade student at Harding Academy. His teacher, Ms. Taylor, nominated Elijah for his stellar work ethic and attention to detail while working in Read Naturally.

Snow is still falling in much of the country, but that doesn’t change the fact that spring conferences are just around the corner. Parents (or guardians) of Read Naturally students will be eager to hear about their child’s progress in reading. This is a great opportunity for you to highlight the student’s successes and address challenges—and to emphasize the ways in which parents can support their child at home. Read Naturally offers a variety of resources developed specifically for parents.

We’re always happy when teachers approach us with questions about the Cold Timing step. Teachers are highly concerned with their students’ cold-timing scores, and for good reason.

If there’s one thing all teachers seem to agree on, it’s the fact that reading aloud to students is highly beneficial. Indeed, one of our most popular blog posts to date was about the magic of reading aloud to your class. This practice boosts literacy and builds community, and it is often a joyful experience for teachers and students alike. National Read Aloud Month is coming up in March, and we encourage you to start planning now for the ways you will participate.
