The Read Live School of the Year Award recognizes schools whose students have substantially improved their reading skills with Read Live. Thank you to everyone who participated! We received dozens of excellent nominations. 

Congratulations to Landon S., our May Star of the Month! Landon is a fifth grader at Cactus Valley Elementary School in Silt, CO. Here is what Landon's teacher, Ms. Sanderman, had to say about him:

We're approaching the end of another challenging school year. Your students have worked hard to accelerate their progress in reading, despite learning disruptions due to the pandemic. As you know, they can't afford anymore setbacks in their reading. Avoiding the summer slide is more important than ever.

Teacher Appreciation Week officially begins next week. Let's kick it off a little early with a bunch of free resources for you. These resources include vocabulary exercises, cue cards to help emerging readers with visually confusing letters, a system for mastering the most frequently misspelled words, and more--all free!

What is the best way to ensure your Read Live students don't lose the progress they made in reading this year? Have them work in One Minute Reader Live over the summer! In school, the majority of Read Live students are working in Read Naturally Live. All of these students also have free access to One Minute Reader Live—an effective and fun summer reading tool.

One of the criteria for passing a Read Naturally story is that students need to answer all the comprehension questions correctly. When teachers learn of this requirement, they tend to have a few questions. Here are the most frequently asked questions about our comprehension requirement, along with answers from our curriculum experts.

​​​​​​​Congratulations to Andrew A., our April Star of the Month!

It's now the middle of March, but the remnants of Valentine's Day still linger in my couch cushions. The handmade cards are always my favorite ones to find… especially the ones wishing a "Happy Valantine's Day." I asked my first grader if he knew what makes the word Valentine so hard to spell. He guessed, "Because it's a long word," which is half right. Long words are usually multisyllabic, and multisyllabic words usually have a schwa. The schwa sound—such as the one on the first "e" in Valentine—is notorious for making words difficult to read and spell.

Read Naturally is now accepting applications for 2022 Read Live School of the Year. The Read Live School of the Year Award recognizes schools whose students have substantially improved their reading skills using the Read Live program this year. The grand prize winner is awarded $2,000 in Read Naturally credit, and the second and third place winners are awarded $500 in Read Naturally credit. Enter your school today!
