One Minute Reader iPad app: Steps


  1. Select Story (Get Ready to Read)
    The reader taps the story he or she wants to read and thinks about what he or she might learn from it. Choosing the story deepens the reader’s investment in the material, and thinking of a prediction prepares the reader's mind for reading the story.
  2. Cold Read
    The reader reads the story for one minute and then taps the last word read when the bell sounds. A graph displays the reader’s cold-timing score, establishing a baseline for progress monitoring, the component of the Read Naturally Strategy that motivates the reader to improve.
  3. Read Along
    The reader reads along quietly with a recording of the story, typically three times. This step is the teacher-modeling component of the Read Naturally Strategy, which helps the reader learn new words and master others as well as learn proper pronunciation, expression, and phrasing.
  4. Read Alone
    The reader practices reading the story without audio support until able to read it accurately and with expression. This step is the repeated-reading component of the Read Naturally Strategy, which helps the reader improve fluency, master difficult words, and understand the story.
  5. Quick Quiz
    The reader answers questions about the story. Responding to the text holds the reader accountable for meaning, develops the ability to answer many types of questions, and provides information about how well the reader comprehends the story. The correct answers to the questions help to solve the book’s Joke Jumble.
  6. Story Summary
    The reader reviews the results from completing the story, including a graph that shows how much the reader has improved since the cold read. 
  7. Crossword:
    The reader solves as many of the clues of the book's crossword puzzles as he or she wants to or is able to before moving on to the next story or book.
