“What does it take to raise reading achievement in a whole school?” A classroom-teacher-turned-reading-coach recently asked this question to one of our favorite experts on literacy, Tim Shanahan. As usual, his answer was detailed, thoughtful, and full of important insights.

May’s “Appy Hour” presentation marked the final webinar in our free series for this year. Thank you to everyone who attended! We were thrilled to offer relevant information and resources to fellow educators, and we enjoyed getting to know you on the other side of the screen. Did you miss one of our live presentations? Not to worry! We have recordings of each webinar available for free on our website.

It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not! Any Read Live student can continue working in the program from home if you set his/her parent up as a program helper. We encourage you to let parents know this is an option.

As a mother of three young children who are drawn to the iPad like moths to a flame, it’s a little hard for me to write a blog post about the upside of screen time. Mostly I see the iPad as a frequent source of conflict in my house. And yet, I’m well aware that there is an upside to this technology.

You've worked hard all year to accelerate your students’ progress. Thanks to your dedication, many of your students are now reading better than ever. How can you ensure this crucial progress is not lost over the summer? While you can’t personally be there to ensure your students don’t experience the “summer slide,” you can help them avoid it. It’s as simple as sending home a flyer.

Some ELL students learning to read in English may need additional support in the Read Along step of Read Naturally Strategy programs. We've built this extra support into many of our levels for Spanish-speaking ELL students.

You’ve made the investment in Read Naturally Live; now you want the best possible results for your struggling readers. To achieve this, proper training in the program is essential. We offer excellent full-day seminars and individual coaching services, but we also recognize that many teachers have limited funds and full schedules. If this is you, we have an easy solution for you.

Phonological awareness is an umbrella term that includes four developmental levels: word awareness, syllable awareness, onset-rime awareness, and phoneme awareness. Our Phonological Awareness Skills table shows how specific phonological awareness skills fall into the four developmental levels. The table provides an example for each skill. We hope you will download, use, and share this free resource!

An increasing number of schools are implementing iPad programs, which means an increasing number of teachers are looking for the best apps to improve reading proficiency. If this is you, we're pleased to inform you that Read Naturally offers two highly successful, highly affordable apps: Read Live and One Minute Reader. Which one is right for you?

Would you shop at a grocery store with a "one size fits all" theme?
