Working with Read Naturally Live


Webinar Video: Read Naturally Live—Beyond the basics: vocabulary


Presented Sept. 20, 2018 by Karen Hunter, Read Naturally Educational Consultant.

We want each student to read the stories in Read Naturally Live fluently. But reading accurately and at an appropriate rate is not enough. Comprehension is the essence of reading! And, we know that vocabulary impacts a student’s ability to comprehend.

Vocabulary is intentionally emphasized throughout the steps of Read Naturally Live, and students must read for meaning to meet requirements for passing each story. By understanding how to make adjustments for specific students, you can maximize your students’ vocabulary development and strengthen their comprehension.
