Read Live Tip #2: Are you checking students’ initial placement for several stories?

Read Naturally recommends that you check each student’s initial placement during the Cold Timing step (for the first few stories). Make sure that:

the student’s cold-timing scores are about 30 less than the goal for students in grades 1-4 and about 40 less for students in grades 5 and higher

​We always welcome questions about best practices with your Read Naturally program and how to make sure you are implementing your school’s program correctly. Many of the questions we get are about the passing step. Here is a quick roundup of some of the most frequently asked questions.

Read Live Tip #1: Are you correctly placing your students in Read Naturally Live?

To maximize student improvement, it is critical that you use the Read Naturally Live placement process to place each student. Do not attempt to use the results from other reading assessments (including Benchmark Assessor Live) to designate a placement level for students. By using the Read Naturally Live placement process, you will place each student with a level and goal that will be challenging enough to accelerate reading improvement but will not be so difficult that the student becomes discouraged.

Run screaming from the building…just kidding…you should help them! If Read Naturally is your chosen intervention then the first thing you will need to do is to set-up your environment. I've seen Read Naturally used in resource rooms, classrooms, computer labs, rolling carts, before school, and after school. I’m happy to talk to you about specifics of your situation so feel free to call.
