Congratulations to Lachlan F., our February Star of the Month! Lachlan is a fourth grader at Providence Hall Elementary School in Herriman, Utah. Here is what Lachlan's teacher, Ms. Chapman, had to say about him:

After analyzing over 30 years of Read Naturally data, we know this for sure: The more stories students pass, the more they improve. The quickest path to reading competency is to successfully complete as many stories as possible. And yet, you probably have a few students who prefer to work at a leisurely pace--unconcerned with how many stories they're passing each week. How can you motivate these students to pick up the pace?

As the need for braille fluency tools has increased, Read Naturally has continued to update its offerings for blind and visually impaired students. We are pleased to now offer these resources free of charge. Any teacher who would like to use these materials can simply click here to order, and we will send you the resources for free.

Congratulations to Ashton L., our January Star of the Month! Ashton is a fourth grader at Riverside Elementary School in Brainerd, MN. Here is what his teacher, Ms. Tollefson, shared about him:

Students learning to read are inherently motivated by their own successes as they become more fluent. When their teachers acknowledge this success as well, it often gives them an extra push to work even harder. These little boosts can help them improve even more quickly. 

Pop quiz! What do you do when you’re staring down a pile of winter assessment data?

Now that the school year is half over, many teachers wonder if it's too late to begin a Read Live intervention. The answer is no! It's never too late to implement Read Live or to add students to your existing account. Once you've trained students in how to use the program, they will start benefitting right away. They can even continue using the program over the summer.

A new page on our website contains audio examples of the phonics sounds students will attempt during the Word Warm-ups Live Assessment and work on in the Word Warm-ups Live exercises. Educators may use this guide to help score the assessment and to understand pronunciation of the patterns in the exercises.

What is the best way to spend a cozy winter break? We may be biased here at Read Naturally, but we believe it's time spent with loved ones and good books. Many students will be motivated to curl up on their own with a favorite book, while many others have not yet reached this point. Regardless of where students are on their reading journey, there are countless ways to incorporate reading into the break.

Congratulations to Alex F., our December Star of the Month! Alex is a seventh grader at South Prairie Elementary School in Sycamore Illinois.
