Are you looking for high-quality, research-based reading curricula at an affordable price… or even for free? Chances are, Read Naturally offers just what you need. Our highly effective tools target all aspects of reading development. Educator favorites include:

Educators around the country—and around the world—are finding that Read Naturally programs work wonders with ELL students. The audio support, student-friendly vocabulary definitions, and high-interest story topics are just a few of the features that make our programs an ideal fit for this population. We love when ELL students learn to read English fluently with Read Naturally programs—and we love when educators take the time to share this progress. ELL instructor Kristina Hasanova is one such educator.

Eighteen Books Added to the One Minute Reader iPad Apps!
The six levels of the One Minute Reader iPad app now contain eight books each instead of five. That’s 90 more stories and 60% more content at the same price.

Here are a few of our favorite resources:

We hope your students spend the upcoming summer break running around playgrounds, catching fireflies, and having plenty of fun. We also hope they maintain the reading skills they’ve worked so hard to develop this year. Is there a way to combine having fun with continuing to build reading...

Spring conferences are fast approaching! As you share your students’ fluency progress with their parents/guardians, point out the ways they can support this progress at home. Consider offering our “fluency at home” letter, which explains to parents how they can use teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring at home.
