The start of the school year is all about getting to know your new students—their personalities, their interests, and their individual needs. Determining which students need extra support in reading, and what that support should look like, are some of the most important decisions you’ll make this year. Thankfully, we’re here to help. Educators can choose from a number of reputable assessments to screen for reading concerns. From there, Read Naturally can help you interpret the data and choose the appropriate intervention.

All Read Live users are now operating in Read Live version 2.1—our best version yet! This version includes many helpful updates and utilizes the most current web technologies.

Who needs phonics support? Allow our QPS diagnostic phonics assessment to answer this question for you quickly and effectively. Did you know the latest edition of this popular tool allows you to assess an entire group of students at once and then use this data to determine which students need a more in-depth, individual phonics assessment? Both the group assessment and the individual assessment are now included in QPS, making it easier than ever for you to identify which students need phonics support and which skills an intervention should target.

At Read Naturally, we love to recognize students, teachers, and schools who work hard to raise reading achievement. As you embark on the new school year, keep in mind Read Naturally’s Star of the Month and School of the Year programs, and be sure to nominate those who deserve to win.

The end of another wonderful school year is upon us, which means it’s time to look back at our most popular blog posts. Each year, we highlight the 10 most-read RN Bookmark posts ​from August through May. This is a great way for teachers to catch up on important content they may have missed and to learn which posts resonated most with their peers. As usual, the RN Bookmark blog was full of helpful Read Naturally tips, tricks, and industry news this year.

Today, we are pleased to announce the release of Read Naturally Encore II. Encore II is a significant update to our popular fluency-building program, Read Naturally Encore. Encore uses the research-based Read Naturally Strategy to accelerate reading achievement using print materials and audio CDs. Encore II builds upon a solid, time-tested foundation to ensure the program will continue serving students for years to come.

Today, we are pleased to announce the winners of the Read Live School of the Year award. Students in the winning schools substantially improved their reading skills using Read Live in the 2018-2019 school year.

We’ve reached the time of year when many parents are filling up their summer calendars, making plans to keep their children’s minds and bodies busy. We at Read Naturally believe reading is the most important activity children should be engaged in this summer. Quiet time to read might not earn a spot on the family calendar, but it should be highly prioritized nonetheless.

In order to continue improving in reading comprehension, students need to continually expand their vocabularies. As much as teachers might like to explicitly teach them all the words they need to learn, this just isn’t realistic. Students need to learn strategies for figuring out new words on their own.

Summer will be here before we know it! While we all welcome summer, we do not welcome the Summer Slide. For this reason, many teachers have expressed interest in setting up students to continue working in Read Live at home over the summer.
