I had used the paper version of Read Naturally for many years with my English As A Second Language students. I loved the way it let me differentiate instruction and the excellent background knowledge and rich vocabulary the children received from the non-fiction stories. After I retired I began volunteering in an under-served city school district and used the paper program in one on one tutoring sessions with native English speakers who were reading below grade level. When schools closed due to the current health crisis, I didn't know how I could help these children anymore, but with Read Live, the excellent support from the Read Naturally videos and webinars, and the Chromebooks that were distributed to the students I have been able to continue working with my students and experience even more growth in their progress. The children are very engaged in their learning and it shows in their positive improvement.

A great program. Kids enjoy using it. They see their progress in fluency and comprehension skills.

Thank you so much for helping me to begin using your program for my 7th grade special education reading students. I was assisted in a timely manner and I always felt satisfied with the feedback and support provided by a gentleman by the name of Joel Olson. He was patient with me and always took the time to make sure I was leaving our support conversation with the answers to the questions I had. I would love nothing more than to continue using your reading program, however, I will be leaving my current teaching position at Shepherd and moving to Poston, another junior high school in the Mesa School District. I will be teaching Pre-Algebra. I highly recommend this program and would gladly recommend the support staff (especially Joel) to help teachers who are new to Read Naturally. Thank you again for the opportunity to use your program.

Your support staff is awesome. I have worked with Joel before. He is truly an asset to your support. Your videos for students have been so well thought out and helpful for them and now their parents as new assistants. Thank you for being so responsive to the needs as they are presenting themselves this year. I have worked with RN since the 90's with the paper pencil version to the SE version and now with Read Live.

Our school is an at-risk elementary school with 93% poverty. We have been using the program for 5+ years. We are thrilled with the program and love the success rate of our students. Our students are so engaged and love the stories, they even research stories further to learn more. The graphs are motivating and lend themselves to the student success. After assessing students and targeting the students in greatest need we are able to track progress with the very precise assessment components that are part of the Read Live program. One of the great aspects of this program is the variety that is offered. Not only variety in the stories but the variety in the skills that can be covered. The success of any intervention is targeting the skills needed specifically by each individual student.

So impressed with the rapid response and with the quality of of the help from the support team!

Read Naturally is a amazing tool. I have used it as a bridge to literacy for both homeless children with limited education and with adult English Language Learners. It meets the students where they are at provided all the tools we needed for success.


Feb 18, 2020


Big fan! The format/questions align with MCAS and my students (grades 2-5) are loving the online version of RN. Less paper and less planning!

This program has helped my students grow and they love using it.

My 4th grade daughter was placed in the ReadNaturally program at the top of the school year and I was struggling with accepting the fact that she was having trouble with reading comprehension. My daughter reads fluently but she was having trouble with sequencing, summarizations, and finding the main idea of a story. I was reluctant but I wanted to help her to become more confident in her schoolwork. Thankfully, this program came along to fill in the gaps. I’m amazed at the progress my daughter has achieved. She’s happier and less stressed while doing her homework and she looks forward to completing her ReadLive stories. We still struggle in some areas but I’ve seen a a major difference in her behavior and her test scores. We will continue to implement this program as long as it’s available. Thank You

Love, Love, Love this program to help build our students fluency. All of the stories are engaging for the students. The technology is easy for both students and teachers to use. I have seen great results over the past 8 years with our 2nd grade-5th grade students. I would definitely recommend this program as a fluency intervention.


Oct 15, 2019


I believe in this program. I have seen students that were basically non-readers blossom into avid readers using this program. The students love it....they can't wait to get on Read Live!


Sep 20, 2019


I am very happy with this program. It helps teach comprehension, vocabulary and most of all confidence. My students are very engaged and love this program.


Aug 28, 2019


I'm so excited to watch even more of our RSP kiddos move from spending several years of their school career at Preprimer level on AR to breaking that "glass ceiling" the very year they start READ LIVE! This program is changing the trajectory of our students future! This program is by far the best and quickest way to get a child really reading FAST! Thank you,


Jul 30, 2019


Read Live Naturally is the best intervention program I've seen. I've been using it for 3 years. I like watching my students improve in their skills and comprehension. The monitoring system is excellent. It's awesome when I can print out a report to show parents their students improvement. Way to go Read Live Naturally!

This is the first year for Read Naturally Live for 30 students in a Title 1 Reading and LAP Reading program for grades 2-6. We had been using the old Read Naturally on computers .8-5.6 and before that just on paper. You have come a long ways. I attended the session last year in Las Vegas at the National Teacher Conference. This summer I will attend the Colorado Springs session on June 26 to learn more. I work in a small, rural school K-12 with under 500 students. I am the reading specialist for students in K-6 in the Title 1 and LAP program. I surveyed my students who used the program this year. Overall, they liked the new program and I do hope we can continue to fund the program. Thank you, Mary Johnson 6-4-19.


May 17, 2019


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!


Mar 28, 2019


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.
