We’ve reached the time of year when many parents are filling up their summer calendars, making plans to keep their children’s minds and bodies busy. We at Read Naturally believe reading is the most important activity children should be engaged in this summer. Quiet time to read might not earn a spot on the family calendar, but it should be highly prioritized nonetheless.

Students using Read Live are encouraged to continue working in the program over the summer. This blog post explains how teachers can set the program up so that parents oversee their child’s progress. 

Additionally, we offer two engaging iPad apps for students to enjoy at home. Read Naturally's One Minute Reader and Splat-o-Nym iPad apps help students build fluency and vocabulary in fun and engaging ways. These are great options for ALL students who could benefit from extra reading and vocabulary practice—even those students not currently working in Read Naturally. We offer free versions of both of these apps.

Download this flyer for more information about how the One Minute Reader and Splat-o-Nym apps can support your students this summer. We encourage you to print and distribute copies to parents.

About the Apps...

Our award-winning One Minute Reader program incorporates the highly effective Read Naturally Strategy into an easy system that students can use to build reading fluency independently at home. One Minute Reader features high-interest, nonfiction content and other engaging features.

Splat-O-Nym is a fun and effective app to help students build vocabulary. Students master synonyms, antonyms, and words-in-context as they learn thousands of useful new words. They have so much fun “splatting” words, accumulating points, and moving from level to level, they often forget that they’re learning!

We would all love to see students continue to make reading progress over the summer. Thank you for nudging these effective options into their homes. If you or your students’ parents have any questions, we are available to help. Don’t hesitate to get in touch!
