Encore LogoRead Naturally is proud to announce that we've given Read Naturally Masters Edition a makeover! Masters Edition has a new look, a number of new features and upgrades, and a new name for the Sequenced series and the Phonics series: Read Naturally Encore!

Encore offers the same research-based curriculum as the Masters Edition, but with upgraded and expanded features, including the following:

  • New and Revised Stories: You talked and we listened! Based on excellent teacher feedback, we've included many new topics, illustrations, and revised stories.
  • A Fresh Look: Encore has an updated design with a more convenient way to store reproducible master books, but still retains the familiar elements found in the Masters Edition so teachers can use a mix of Encore and Masters Edition levels.
  • More Emphasis on Vocabulary: To encourage further vocabulary development, each Encore level includes one copy of the corresponding audio-supported glossary, with student-friendly definitions and color illustrations.
  • New! Additional Comprehension Questions: Encore has a new vocabulary question in levels 3.0-5.0, a new sequencing/cloze question in levels 4.0-5.0, and more comparison questions at the higher levels.
  • New! Spanish Audio: Encore provides an optional audio translation of the story in sequenced levels 1.0-4.5. An ELL student can listen to this audio to build vocabulary and background knowledge before completing the steps in English.
  • Improved Phonics Lessons and Word Lists: Encore Phonics levels have expanded phonics lessons and revised, audio-supported word lists.
  • New! Expressive Read Along: One of Encore’s read alongs is now at an expressive rate. The student reads along with a proficient reader modeling good expression.
  • New! Resources on Our Website: Read Naturally has many online resources for Encore, including certificates in color, reproducible masters for glossaries, additional graphs, and crossword puzzles for each story.

What’s included in each Encore level?

  • 24 high-interest, nonfiction stories with comprehension questions, in reproducible master
  • 12 audio CDs with two stories per CD: key words, definitions, stories, new expressive-rate read alongs, Spanish translation (in Sequenced levels 1.0-4.5) and phonics lessons and word lists (in Phonics levels)
  • One color glossary for the level

Extra resources on our website: certificates in color, reproducible masters for glossaries, additional graphs, and more!
