Are you looking for a way to quickly and accurately assess your students’ phonics abilities? Look no further than Read Naturally’s Quick Phonics Screener (QPS).

Teachers consistently report that QPS provides highly valuable information through an easy and efficient process. This criterion-referenced assessment is appropriate for kindergarteners, adult learners, and all students in between.

Congratulations to Star Student Gabriel B. from High Point, NC! Gabriel is a seventh-grade student at Ferndale Middle School. Gabriel’s teacher, Julie Kimsey, had this to say about him:

Next week, we will be exhibiting at the National Association of Psychologists (NASP) Conference in Washington, DC from February 18 – 21, 2014. This conference brings together more than 6,000 attendees focused on the education and mental health issues affecting children and youth. If you are able to attend, make sure to visit our booth #507 for a chance to win free curriculum. We will also be presenting a presentation.

When we developed Read Naturally Encore and Read Live, we placed a special emphasis on vocabulary development. Students using these tools now have more vocabulary support than ever, and their reading comprehension is benefiting.

Now that I have the floor, I’d like to give my two cents on our Idioms series. Here’s the scoop: In the English language, idioms are a dime a dozen. We’re up to our ears in them! Native speakers are old hand at incorporating idioms into conversation, but ELL students are often behind the eight ball. When they hear these silly expressions, they must think we’re off our rockers. These students are probably tearing their hair out trying to understand what we mean! To make a long story short: Idioms are fun for us, but they’re driving our ELL students up the wall.

Make Your Student a STAR!
