I love that this is a program that can be done independently and on the student's level.


Apr 2, 2019


We have used Read Live as a reading intervention for three years. What we love about the program is that it includes so many critical reading components, such as rich vocabulary, predicting, reading along with a fluent reader, rereading the text for building fluency, answering different types of questions for comprehension (always including a question covering the main idea and one on sequencing), and a retell. Also, students are placed at their own reading level. As a bonus, the students love the content of the stories as they are interesting nonfiction topics and are often ones they have not read about before. Excellent program!

This is an awesome program! My students fought me with it at first but now they are excited to use it!


Feb 18, 2019


We are using the live version as a supplement to the core program. The online format allows me to reach more students at the same time and also automate the record-keeping. The vocabulary feature is beneficial. It provides practice while students wait for the teacher to pass them. I also find the passages interesting and well written.

I can’t recommend this product more highly. I use it with my students who are on red or yellow in DIBELS and the progress they make is incredible. I’m a 2nd grade teacher so the reading levels in my class go from C-R! I love Read Naturally because it can help all the levels without purchasing separate modules. It is so easy to administer that I have a parent volunteer help out. I wish there was a talk to text feature so the students could record their own predictions and retell. I tried that feature in iPads but it was pretty inaccurate in translations of 7 and 8 year old voices.

Get this product! It is so affordable and best of all it works.

Everyone at Read Naturally is always so very helpful and attentive to questions that may come up! The program is crucial to the forward advancement of our struggling learners. Appreciative of all the support we have received from everyone at Read Naturally!!!

My Tier 3 students have huge success with Read Naturally Live. Using this as an intervention with my students, most of them progress out of the Tier 3 program. My students are motivated to read and can't wait to beat their times. I absolutely love how the program is designed to address, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, and most of all fluency. I will forever support this product as I see excellent results in my classroom!!!!


Jan 10, 2019


Read Naturally Live is an excellent tool to help kids work independently on improving their fluency. IT is easy to keep data on all skill areas with the Read Live website. The brief nonfiction articles are interesting and, on occasion, mesh with content being taught in social studies and science. Kids develop even further confidence contributing interesting information they've gleaned with repeated readings of the articles. The vocabulary development sections are well done and fun for the kids to work with! As a teacher who is not particularly "tech savvy", the staff is always at the ready responding promptly via phone or email!

The directions to zoom out worked. The response was quick. I wish the interface(?) was different. When I zoom out, I can see more names, but then it's harder to read the text. Thank you!

We have used Read Live in our school for the past 4 years with our tier 2 and 3 students. We have seen tremendous growth using the Read Live program. Our students are motivated by the engaging nonfiction stories. The program allows them to improve their fluency, comprehension, vocabulary and phonics (if needed).


Nov 28, 2018


Read Naturally Live has been great for multiple students at different instructional levels needing instruction at the same time. With added incentives, students who have been defiant to reading have now taken time to better their reading skills and have seen success with this program!!! Seeing students light up after they see results is amazing for a teacher's heart.


Nov 21, 2018


Great product. The students are highly engaged and we have definitely seen tremendous growth in fluency, accuracy and comprehension.

I have found that Read Naturally works with students of different reading levels. I think the writing component is excellent as this is where many students need support.

Read Naturally Live has been a wonderful addition to my tool box for fluency instruction for my struggling Readers needing intervention. I have been using this program for 3 years. My students love the using the program and monitoring their own progress with the Graphs. The report also provide excellent data for parents during meetings and conferences as well as current performance when goal planning. This past summer I provided an introduction to Read Naturally Live for my parents so they could also encourage their student to continue reading over the summer. They were able to log in as parent helpers. The response was great! As I looped with up to grade 6 with the same students that I worked with last year, the students were able to continue right where they left off. Also, being able to print paper copies of the stories is helpful to y students. It gives them access to the text on paper so when they go back into the stories to answer comprehension questions or write a retell, they can highlight the information. This also helps me intervene and give focus lessons where it's needed because I can see the errors.

I learned about Read Naturally way back in 2006 when I was a student teacher in a Special Day Class. At that time my Master Teacher had Read Naturally in paper form with CDs, CD players and headphones. She built in her student's regular practice everyday as a part of their Language Arts/English time. I saw how effective it was and provided immediate feedback to each student at their individual level. Each passage was paired with comprehension strategies. So when I started teaching as a resource specialist a bit later I used the strategies with basic reading passages. Just recently revisited the website when I was working for a private school, used the free trial and we invested in an account. I had such great results with a number of students who were really struggling. I got quite a few students up to their appropriate grade/year level (I was teaching in the UK) or they moved up more than one year level in less than one school year. It also produces data on the reading and comprehension skills of each students, which is great for knowing how to further support the students in intervention. I always recommend this program/programme to teachers and parents!

Joel responded very quickly to resolve my problem. Thanks!

I've been using using Reed Live Naturally for a few years now as an intervention for struggling readers. I really enjoy seeing my students improve and have successful reading experiences. I also use the Benchmark Assessment to assess all the students in the school 3 times a yea, so I can identify those students need the intervention. You've done a great job. I have taught for 25 years and I'm very impressed with what you've done. Best reading intervention I've ever seen.


May 31, 2018


I appreciate the ease of using this program for my special needs students. The stories are interesting and engaging.


May 30, 2018


We have been using ReadLive since January (4 months so far) and have already seen great progress with our most struggling readers. They are engaged to come read with us, and look forward to hearing the "Bing" of correct responses, and see their charts jump up as they meet their goals! Their overall reading levels and comprehension skills have also flourished. I am so impressed with their engagement and progress! I wish there were a French Canadian version for our French Immersion students! The customer service has also been top notch!

This program has dramatically increased the fluency, comprehension and writing abilities of my ELL students. Their MAP scores have risen as much as 15 points in a trimester. It provides great individualization.
