Read Naturally Live is a great program. It is repetitive enough for them to use independently. My students were very excited to use it at first. However, I have had to provide a class sticker chart to show the number of stories each student has completed in order to keep them motivated over time (after they complete two stories, they get a small prize). Some suggested improvements: 1) I feel there should be a read-along component to go with the phonics-based words list. If students are doing this independently, they may think they know a word so they don't always click on them. Then they read it incorrectly 3 times before I correct them. 2) On the word list, I feel the harder words should be at the bottom. For example, in the -at column, the words are listed flat, fat, at, cat, hat. My students struggle to blend letters, so they get really stuck on flat because it's first. If they had a chance to read at, fat, cat, hat, they might have an easier time realizing that word rhymes, so it must be flat. 3) Make the long term fluency chart visible to students after completing each story. They want to see themselves improving over time, and this would help motivate them to try their hardest on the read alongs and practicing of the story.

Thank you for your thoughtful review, Callie. Read Naturally Live gets students to do the same task over and over because of the intrinsic motivation that comes from improving a little bit each time, but students sometimes do need additional motivation. You'll be pleased to learn that the long-term fluency chart is already available to students after completing each story! There are three tabs at the top of the Story Details page shown in the Pass Step. Each tab has a graph: fluency, comprehension, and word lists (or retellings in Sequenced levels) so the student can see progress on all completed stories. Please see Read Naturally Live FAQs for some suggestions about supporting students during the Word List step. Your comments help us as we consider changes for future releases. We will note them and discuss each of these in our planning sessions

The only problem I find is during the testing of the word list on the ipad or tablet. In the second part of the word list test, as a child "traces" the list across, their palm is likely to touch the "finished" button. This skews the timing score as it ends the session prematurely. Perhaps the "finished" button could be moved to another area of the screen.

Thank you, Katherine for the input. I am pleased that the iPad version of the student program is useful for working with your students. We have recorded your suggestion about button placement and will consider the issue when we plan future releases.

We switched over to Read Live in January. Our reluctant students seem to really enjoy this version so much better. I actually look forward to it as well. The results show that it really works and the students see their success.

As a Reading Specialist and Resource Room teacher, I am very satisfied with Read Live. But the most important factor is that my students are very enthusiastic and excited to be on Read Live. They are so motivated to improve their levels and they enjoy the graphics especially the starts and the sounds associated with a correct answer.

We tried the trial Read Live program and were very pleased. We purchased the program and our tier 2 intervention students are much more motivated using this program than when they were using the paper version. The reports are great for sharing at our RtI meetings too.Thank you!

Read Live is wonderful. I enjoy listening to the stories that the students read to me. We are all learning so many interesting things about science and social studies. I am a music teacher who was asked to work worth a small group of students needing more help in reading. In desperation, I went to Google and found Read Live. After a free trial period, I convinced my administrators to purchase 30 seats. This has been very user friendly. I called a few times with questions and everyone was always nice and helpful to me. I downloaded some instructions that were also easy to follow. We love the program here. I am trying to convince more educators to use this in their schools.

My students are making amazing progress with Read Live. They are very excited about monitoring their progress and are completely engaged in the stories. Reports are awesome and so easy to interpret. Parents and students can really see progress. It also gives me great data for setting IEP goals. I am your greatest fan. This program makes me feel like I am truly making a difference in my students' lives.

Our students are making progress with reading fluency and comprehension using Read Live. We like the flexibility Read Live gives us. Each student can start at their level and work at their own pace. They also like to make it a competition, and that is motivating for them.

We are so glad that we have this program. It follows the research for best practices in fluency instruction and intervention. Our students have made great gains as evidenced by our progress monitoring data. I don't know what we would have done without it!

I have tutored in a reading lab using Read Naturally for twelve years. We are now using Read Naturally Live. We have gone through the upgrades over the years and the program just gets better and better! Not only has it improved test scores but also the interest in reading and pride of the students as they see their improvement. It is a valuable tool for teachers, students, and parents.

My school district started using the cassette version in 1998, and we switched to the Software Edition in 2005. Now we are moving to Read Naturally Live, the Cadillac of this successful reading intervention. Read Naturally has increased the reading achievement of thousands of students in our district over the last fifteen years, and we plan to use it for years to come!
