Winter break is a couple days away. It’s almost time to celebrate! Before you release your students to make mischief, merriment and hopefully lots of hot chocolate, we urge you to ask them just one question: “Who will read with you over break?”

Alex V. is our Read Naturally Star of the Month. He is a fourth grader at George Brown Jr. Elementary in San Bernardino, CA. Alex was nominated and chosen for the commitment and progress he has shown in his reading with Read Naturally Live.

“What is your favorite children’s book and why?” We recently asked this question to the entire Read Naturally staff. The reason was twofold. First, we wanted to mark this Season of Giving by donating 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.

Research tells us that in order to become fluent, students need to learn to decode unknown words accurately and automatically. An understanding of phonics is what makes this possible. Earlier this year, we explained how our QPS diagnostic phonics assessment can quickly and easily alert you to students who need additional phonics support. Last month, we highlighted our popular GATE for phonics program, which is an ideal phonics intervention for small groups of early readers. But what if you’re looking for a phonics intervention that students of all ages can use mostly independently?
