English Language Learners

Adapting the Read Along Step

The Read Naturally Strategy programs—Read Naturally Live (a component of Read Live), Read Naturally Encore, Read Naturally ME, and Read Naturally SE—include a Read Along step in which students read chorally with a native speaker the story three times. This benefits all students but is especially important for expanding the language skills of ELL students. Consider providing additional language support for ELL students by adapting the Read Along step.

Direct a Spanish-speaking ELL student to listen to a Spanish translation of the story before doing the Read Along step in English. The opportunity to listen to the story in Spanish helps the student develop an understanding of the story by building some background and vocabulary knowledge before continuing with the rest of the steps in English.

Spanish translations of the Sequenced series stories are included in these programs and levels:

  • Read Naturally Live: Sequenced series, levels 1.0 – 4.5
  • Read Naturally Encore: Sequenced series, levels 1.0 – 4.5

Spanish translations of Sequenced series stories are available in separate Spanish series for these programs and levels:

  • Read Naturally SE: levels 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.5, and 4.5
  • Read Naturally ME: levels 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.5, and 4.5
