March is National Reading Month, a time to celebrate reading. As a literacy company, reading celebrations are our favorite! In honor of National Reading Month, we polled the Read Naturally staff to find out why they love reading. We hope their responses will inspire you and your students to spend some time enjoying a good book together!  

“Why do you have a level 5.6…What happened to level 5.5?” This question comes into our customer service department fairly frequently, though there’s no official tally. I have actually wondered about this myself! Here is the history on Level 5.6, from one of our original writers:  

One of the things that sets Read Naturally programs apart is our high-interest, nonfiction stories. Struggling readers need to feel motivated to read, so we try to find unique topics that will hold their interest and spark their curiosity. When we read about the work of the nonprofit APOPO, not only were we inspired by its mission, but we knew we had the makings of a great story. Since then, our Rats to the Rescue story in Read Live and Encore II Level 5.6 has become a crowd favorite.

This Thanksgiving season, consider some literacy-boosting ways to encourage your students to reflect on what they’re grateful for. We created a bunch of free gratitude-themed resources we think you and your students will love!

For the seventh year in a row, the Read Naturally team got together to supply local kids in need with back-to-school essentials.

​​​​​​​National Reading Awareness Month is an annual event held in the United States during the month of March. The purpose of this event is to promote the importance of reading and literacy, and to encourage people to make reading a part of their daily lives.

“What is your favorite children’s book and why?” We asked this question to the entire Read Naturally staff. The reason was twofold. First, we wanted to donate the books—48 in total—to a local nonprofit called Read Indeed, which distributes books to children in need. Second, we wanted to compile a thoughtful booklist to share with all of you, our dear supporters.

Congratulations to Ashton L., our January Star of the Month! Ashton is a fourth grader at Riverside Elementary School in Brainerd, MN. Here is what his teacher, Ms. Tollefson, shared about him:

What is the best way to spend a cozy winter break? We may be biased here at Read Naturally, but we believe it's time spent with loved ones and good books. Many students will be motivated to curl up on their own with a favorite book, while many others have not yet reached this point. Regardless of where students are on their reading journey, there are countless ways to incorporate reading into the break.
