I was introduced to Read Naturally at a conference and fell in love with it. I am currently using a trial version in my classes. I teach special education and have some very reluctant readers because it is so difficult for them. After being introduced to Read Naturally Live, the students are asking to stay later in my class so they can read more. It is so exciting to see them want to read!


Feb 21, 2018


Thank you for the information. It was very helpful :-)


Feb 14, 2018


I love that this program provides for teaching points. I am always redirecting my students back to the text to find support for their short responses. Students can learn a lot just from analyzing HOW a question, definition or context are phrased. One thing I would love to see is a "NOT YET" option for teachers on the short response and retell portions. We focus so much on growth mindset that clicking "NO" puts readers in that "fixed mindset" and implies that they are wrong, when they just need to elaborate.

I love this program. I have brought it to 3 schools over the past 11 years because it is THE BEST program for struggling readers. It allows individualized practice and instruction in a small group setting. It also provides meaningful data for writing and monitoring progress on reading goals. With the reports available, I am able to communicate very specific details about students strengths, deficits, functional levels, and growth with parents and fellow educators. Since it is a direct measure of reading and comprehension levels, it is the most meaningful tool I have for effective reading intervention. Students really enjoy the informational text.

I am always impressed with how fast Read Naturally responds to a HELP ticket. Within minutes I had help and was able to get back in to the program and back to work. Thank you

This is my first year using RNL. RNL is a great resource to build fluency and boost comprehension. My students enjoy the bank of stories and always ask if it is RNL time yet. If the vocabulary game was available the cold and pass activity times it would have gotten a 5 star rating.

Victoria Sharrer Jan 3, 2018
After completing both the review and a survey, I received email responses from both parties. Talk about AMAZING customer service!! They have helped me out and explained how the program does in-fact allow students to do Wordtastic (the vocabulary game mentioned above) while waiting for pass activities to be checked after practicing the story an extra time. My students and I, both need to read and listen more carefully to the directions. :) OUTSTANDING product!!

I have used Read Naturally software edition for years. It has been one of my "go-to" interventions for struggling readers. Read Naturally Live was one of the first programs I requested at my new school this year!


Dec 6, 2017


I love this reading program! The stories are very engaging.


Nov 28, 2017


Love using Read Naturally Live with my students!


Nov 27, 2017


We used the old Read Naturally Program for many years, but we LOVE the new Read Naturally Live! We have 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Fluency and Comprehension Intervention groups using it this year. We have had great success and the students love it! It meets the individual needs of each student where they are at. If you are looking for a program to increase fluency, this is the one! I'd like to add that the support folks at Read Naturally Live are awesome to work with. They have been so helpful with technical issues and licensing concerns.

I can't believe in the short amount of time we have used Read Naturally how much improvement our students are showing. It is a tremendous tool for struggling readers.


Oct 27, 2017


Read Naturally Live is a fantastic tool! It provides the structure needed for effective reading practice and growth using engaging non-fiction stories. My students love seeing their reading progress after following the repeat reading steps.

Read Live is an independent reading class for our struggling readers to practice fluency and comprehension. I interact individually with students to check their work and their progress. Students are practicing reading and understanding as they read. The non-fiction stories are high interest for the students. I love using this tool with my students. I look for weaknesses and address those with a weekly whole group lesson and practice session. All my students are making progress!
I wish the vocabulary "game" that they work on while waiting for their cold read had a score that was reported to me. Sometimes the students are just clicking without reading carefully. Is that available and I don't know about it?

TJ Ihnot, Marketing at Read Naturally Jan 3, 2018

The program does not currently report data on the Wordtastic game. Wordtastic is designed as a waiting activity and is not considered a core part of the intervention curriculum. Thank you for using Read Naturally Live! 

Victoria Sharrer Jan 3, 2018

I would like to know the answer to the Wordtastic question as well. Did you find a way to view this?

Oct 20, 2017


I have been using Read Live for the past 2.5 years and have been very happy with it. I get a lot of valuable data from it and 'my readers' benefit from the differentiated instruction.
The most recent updates though have made it buggy and slow. That being said, tech support is quick to respond and I look forward to it stabilizing in the near future.

Tech Support at Read Naturally Oct 20, 2017

Jason, thank you for your valuable feedback! We’re sorry for the recent service disruption with our most recent update. The changes we made to the program were significant, and caused some of our users to temporarily experience performance issues. We believe that we have solved most of these issues, but will continue to work with you to resolve any problems you may still be encountering with Read Live. Please reach out to us at any time so that we can ensure you receive the best support and experience with the program possible. Thank you for using Read Live!

Our district has experienced lots of success with our middle school RTI2 students who are using Read Naturally Live. Interventionists report that students like using the program. There is minimal planning time involved and the program teaches vocabulary and comprehension strategies as students read. Students like the program because they can work at their own pace. They don't have to read in front of a group, and there is a choice of interesting texts for them to read.


Sep 28, 2017


Lovin' it! My students are totally engaged with the high-interest informational reading selections. They can't wait to read! They get excited about the progress they see on their graphs, and we have valuable conversations when progress is not as expected. I get excited about the progress that is evident from cold-to- hot reads!


Aug 29, 2017


I've taught for 25 years and I'm seeing the most success in reading for my students than I have ever seen.

This summer I tutored a Chinese boy who was adopted and has only been in the United States for a year. He's 11 years old going into 7th grade and only reading at a second grade level when I started working with him the beginning of the summer. He has completed five stories and moved up one grade level over the summer. I am so excited about the progress that he has made in such a short time using Read Live Naturally.

Thanks for all you do to help improve students' reading.

My school uses Read Live , it is a great help for the teacher and the students like it a lot. They accelerate in reading without complaining or feeling that it is hard. The little stories are very interesting to the students, at the appropriate level and adapts to the students learning style , allowing them to have all the time need it to accomplish reading fluency and comprehension. Using Read-live was the principal's decision for the school. At the end of the school year, I was impress with the results. I think it was the best program to use for our students. We will continue using this amazing program.

I used Read Naturally for four years in Washoe County School District Reno, NV. I saw what a great job the program did to improve not only the student's reading but also language skills. I love that the stories are nonfiction. Great way to learn about all sorts of topics. I used the 60 day trial for the new school district that I work for. I saw huge jumps in reading levels for my low 4th and 5th grade readers. We are now purchasing the program to set up a reading lab for the following school year. I am excited to use this with all our struggling readers.
