This program is so easy to get up and running. It is highly motivating with the student choice options, the graphics and the timings. I notice the students really taking ownership of their learning and goals. The Read Along and Read Alone features provide valuable independent practice. I am able to continue with all of my other reading instruction without adding something new that is timely to learn and implement. It also provides good feedback on a weekly basis on what individual comprehension questions need to be addressed. I am very pleased with it.

Read Naturally is perfect for struggling readers. The material is high interest, so high interest in fact that students don't always want to move to the next level because they want to read the stories on the level they just graduated from! The online program makes it easy for students to do the comprehension questions and fix those they've missed. The vocabulary exercise while waiting for the teacher is also excellent. The most important predictor of whether a student will become a successful reader is the time he spends reading, and this program gives ample time and practice to reading, and the students feel rewarded as they improve their fluency. I highly recommend this program!

We have used Read Naturally for years and the students love the stories. We just started using Read Live last spring and it has all of the qualities that we love from Read Naturally but it is so much easier.

I have been using this program for a few months and my students have been making noticeable progress in all areas, especially reading fluency. This is a very motivating program and the progress monitoring is so helpful when discussing with parents and keeping data.

Read Naturally has been a great learning tool for many of our learners that struggle with reading. Not only has this program increased our learners' fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, but also their confidence! The program is learner driven and lets them choose their own stories. For educators, it is so user friendly. Customer service representatives are always helpful. Thank you so much!!!

I have been using Read Live with my ESL students and THEY LOVE IT! It offers them the opportunity to "read independently". The phonics level is an invaluable tool that is easily adapted for my beginner English language learners.

My district has had great success with this program at the middle school level for several years. We use RNL as a daily intervention for students scoring below grade level for reading comprehension and fluency. Includes a great selection of nonfiction texts and the stories are interesting for most students. I do wish that most or all stories would include a short video or a better selection of pictures. Some stories, like the story about Ulama and the Northern Lights story, would be much easier to understand if students could see those events in action. Relating text to multimedia sources is also an important part of testing today. Overall a useful program if implemented in small groups with consistency.

Read Naturally improves students reading scores. Students practice predicting, study vocabulary and do repeated reading to help with fluency. Questions about the passages include literal questions, vocabulary questions, and main idea questions. The stories are all nonfiction and very interesting for the students.

The adaptation from the older Read Naturally program to the Read Live program has been done well.
The addition of the independent vocabulary building exercise with synonyms and antonyms is excellent for students and teachers alike.
They are learning and well occupied, and it takes the pressure off teachers who may be busy with another student.
The addition of some international stories, such as the Terry Fox story, is appreciated by your northern neighbors.
And students who have attained their fluency goals can focus on their reading comprehension and written responses much more efficiently as improving answers is easy on a keyboard. Thanks for moving literacy intervention into Twenty first century learning.

Read Live is an excellent program that truly targets fluency through research-based strategies. It is relatively easy to use and is perfect for use with interventions and special education students with fluency goals. Plus, Read Naturally has excellent customer service; I have never had a bad experience with tech support or any other support staff with whom I've worked. The only thing I would say about Read Live is that, sometimes, the comprehension questions get a bit cumbersome at the end to score, and it's overwhelming to go over ALL of the types of questions with the students. You have to choose a few types to focus on at any given time, or it takes a long time to move students from story to story.

Karen McKenna, Read Naturally Director of Curriculum Feb 23, 2015

Samantha, your solution to focus on only a few types of questions is an excellent strategy to help students master comprehension skills and make the Pass step less cumbersome. Another way to develop comprehension and increase efficiency is to use the link to the correct answer (located directly under the student's response) when scoring open-ended questions. In addition, limiting the evaluation of the answer to the quality of comprehension rather than the quality of writing may help the student focus on understanding the story and will improve your efficiency. Thanks for taking the time to review Read Naturally Live.

It is always refreshing to deal with a company that not only provides a stellar product for teachers and students, but who also provides excellent customer service. We have been using the self-study, hands-on training workbooks for Read Live since January, and find them extremely well-done and easy to follow. We needed to order quite a few more as more of our teachers begin to use Read Live, and after a phone call to Christy Baldinger, I had a quote within minutes at a savings of $300 to my district. Can you say "Made My Day!"? Thank you for making your customers feel valued while providing support for our students. We appreciate it!

I have been using Read Naturally for over ten years. My special needs students at both the upper elementary and high school level have all benefited from it. Reading fluency has improved for most students in just a short time. Students like the stories that they have to choose from. RN makes it possible to work with several students at the same time, who are reading at different levels and have different reading needs. Read Live is a nice improvement to the program as well as the ipad app.

Read Live has not only helped build the fluency of my students but it has increased their overall confidence in all areas of study. I have seen student faces light up when the meet their reading goals. I hear them reading with more pride and confidence.

I love this program and so do my students. I love how it builds their confidence. I am a special education teacher who teaches 4th and 5th graders who struggle with reading. I was very surprised that their retell comprehension scores for DIBELS went up dramatically after using this program for 3 months. When they come to the retell section I have them tell me three things about the story. They have learned to pay more attention to what is going on in the story. They have also learned about self-correcting and their errors have decreased dramatically. I am so glad we have iPads. It does make a difference using iPads verses the paper version. Last year I had 5th graders on a different reading fluency program. I would have them read a passage for 1 minutes, three times. They complained about reading it 3 times. Now they are doing about 8 rereads and no complaining and I think it is because of the iPads. The only thing I wish that they would have is an option to slow down the read along. For some of my students it is too fast or it confuses them. The first read along I have them listen, the second read along they take the headphones off and read out loud and the third read along I have them read with the reader. Hope this helps give an idea about the benefits of this program. Love it!!
