As everyone scrambles to get ready for the 2015–16 school year, Read Naturally is taking a minute to thank teachers for their support.

In the Tom Hanks + Meg Ryan blockbuster “You’ve Got Mail,” a giant book superstore opens up right next to a small, independent bookstore. The movie explores how the two businesses are different. The giant store offers a wider selection. The small store provides a more personal touch. The giant store does a decent job at many things; the small store does an excellent job at a few things.

Researchers in academic settings frequently conduct studies of our programs. Overwhelmingly, these studies demonstrate the positive effects of a Read Naturally intervention. For example, Dr. Jayna Jensen recently conducted a study in which Special Education students at a middle school in California used Read Naturally Software Edition (SE). The study found that the Read Naturally intervention produced statistically significant gains in the students’ California Modified English Assessment (CMA) scores.

Summer has finally arrived! Maybe you’ll be drinking lemonade on the beach, playing some golf or tennis, swimming in a lake, or just curling up with a good book under a shady tree. Or maybe, you’re headed to one of the great educational conferences being held this time of year.

We frequently encounter homeschool educators who are interested in using our materials. Often these educators have heard positive things about how our research-based programs work for struggling readers. Although our programs weren't specifically designed for use in a homeschool setting, many can be adapted to work well in this environment.

Are you looking for high-quality, research-based reading curricula at an affordable price… or even for free? Chances are, Read Naturally offers just what you need. Our highly effective tools target all aspects of reading development. Educator favorites include:

Last month, Read Naturally attended an early-learning conference to promote Funēmics, our phonemic awareness program. Many attendees were surprised to see us there. They expressed that early childhood educators should not be teaching reading to students before they’re ready. When we explained that Funēmics is a pre-reading curriculum that does not incorporate letters or written words, they were shocked. “But you’re a reading company,” they said.

Make the most of your Read Naturally program by attending a seminar this summer or fall! These seminars are held throughout the country and are hosted by the nation's top Read Naturally experts. You will learn crucial information on how to start a new Read Naturally...

Technology in the classroom continues to be a growing trend and is transforming the way students learn. Read Naturally is excited to share how we have transformed our programs to better fit the learning style of this new technologically savvy generation of students.
