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 letter.

Ever feel like you need to be doing more with less time? That’s why we couldn't leave well enough alone. We listened to your suggestions and totally re-made the Read Naturally Group and Tutoring Edition (GATE) so that it is better than ever for you and your students.

Congratulations to Star Student Nancy R. from Fairview, OR! Nancy is a fourth-grade student at Salish Ponds Elementary School. Nancy’s teacher, Linda Kirby, had this to say about her:

What are some similarities and differences between the Taj Mahal and the Golden Temple? What do Read Naturally programs have in common with the Common Core State Standards? How do these questions relate to each other, and most importantly, how do they relate to free resources for teachers?

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) specify that students should have the ability to analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics. Drawing comparisons in this way helps students build knowledge and think critically about the different approaches of various texts.

Students using Read Naturally Live have completed more than 1,000,000 stories! Since being released in June of 2011, thousands of teachers have used Read Live with tens of thousands of students. We have received fantastic feedback from teachers and students, and it’s clear Read Naturally Live is the best version of the Read Naturally strategy ever. I have a feeling two million stories isn't that far off.

Make Your Student a STAR!
