Have you heard of the fourth-grade slump in reading? Research shows that many students experience a decline in their reading ability around grade four, and this decline is linked to the size of their vocabulary.

Investing the time to train your students well in the Read Naturally Live program will yield incredible benefits later. When the steps of the program are easy and automatic for students, they can devote all their mental energy to the important task of reading. That’s why we created A Student’s Guide to Read Naturally Live—a free training resource we hope all Read Naturally Live teachers and aides will take advantage of. This resource makes Read Naturally Live training easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable than ever before.

Back to School! That phrase seems to imply we’re all settling back into something, doesn’t it? But as all educators know, there’s nothing settled about this time of year. It’s a frenzied, fast-paced new start. We’re all ready to go and to grow—forward and onward, not backward.

Nathalia A. is our April Star of the Month winner. Nathalia is a sixth-grade student at Lutie Lewis Coates Elementary. She was nominated for the incredible progress she has made in Read Naturally Live and the increased confidence she now has. After two years Nathalia is now reading on grade level, which is an increase of three grade levels. Her teacher Jennette Leiva had shared the following with us about Nathalia's success.

I’ve long believed that when students work in Read Naturally Live or Read Naturally Encore, we should address their phonics needs as well as improve their reading fluency. Actually, improving phonics skills is foundational to increasing fluency.

Read Naturally is pleased to announce the 2018 Read Live School of the Year Award to recognize schools whose students have substantially improved their reading skills using the Read Live program. Enter today for a chance to win $2000 for your school.

Read Naturally programs are inherently motivating. Students know how well they are performing based on their goals and progress monitoring graphs. The desire to see these goals and graphs improve is enough to motivate most students to put forth their best effort. Still, a little external recognition doesn’t hurt.

Congratulations Elijah J. from Nashville, TN for being named our February Star of the Month. Elijah is a second-grade student at Harding Academy. His teacher, Ms. Taylor, nominated Elijah for his stellar work ethic and attention to detail while working in Read Naturally.
