Read Naturally Encore: Communicating with students and parents


Communicating with students and their parents/guardians helps to ensure that students are having a positive experience with Read Naturally Encore and are progressing at a good pace.

When students begin working in Encore, it is important to send home a letter to parents/guardians that explains Read Naturally Encore.

Keep parents/guardians involved in the process by sending home a packet of several stories as the student completes them. You can also include the completed graph page to provide a visual record of the student's progress. Use a Certificate of Achievement as a cover letter for the packet and include comments about the student's progress.

It is important to communicate information and progress with students and parents/guardians. Sharing success can be very motivating to students and reassuring to parents.

If a student is not making the gains you expect while working in Encore, try the following:

  • Call the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) to discuss the lack of progress. They may have information to help you better understand the student. They may also be willing to work with the student at home.
  • Make suggestions to the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) about how to work on fluency with the student at home. Send home a letter that explains how to support teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring at home. This letter also gives information about Read Naturally's home product, One Minute Reader, which interested parents may want to purchase.
