After a challenge is identified, one of two things tends to happen: Either the challenge grows, or it shrinks. The challenge tends to grow if the solution is unknown and hard to find. Conversely, it tends to shrink if there is a tried-and-true, high-quality solution at the ready. As you know, struggling readers fare best if there’s a clear and effective way to help them move forward. For thousands of schools, that way forward is Read Naturally.

We at Read Naturally have something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Over 1,000 education professionals recently voted for their favorite educational technology tools via THE Journal’s fourth-annual Readers’ Choice Awards. We’re pleased to announce that Read Naturally won a platinum award in the category of Favorite Interventions & Remediation Software! Click here for the full list of winners.

Congratulations goes to Caden D. from Fiskdale, MA for being named Read Naturally's October Star of the Month. Caden is an eighth-grade student at Tantasqua Regional Junior High School.

Imagine that a fourth grader comes home from school raving about a math game he got to play on an iPad at school. He asks his mom if he can continue playing the game at home. The mom finds the free game online, and it seems legit, so she agrees. A little extra math practice can’t hurt, right? But when she goes to check on her son a short while later, it’s clear he’s not using the game to improve his math skills at all. He’s solving problems like 2+2. He likes this “math game” because he has figured out how to make it 1% math practice and 99% just a game. (He has also weaseled his way into extra screen time.)

At Read Naturally, we value educating teachers as much as we value educating students. In order for struggling readers to become fluent readers, teachers must learn the best ways to support these students. We believe all teachers should have access to this information, which is why we offer a variety of teacher training resources free of charge.
