This Spanish language version of Read Naturally Live develops the literacy skills of multilingual readers. Read Naturally Live—Español utilizes the highly effective, research-based Read Naturally Strategy on a web-based platform. This mostly independent reading program supports native Spanish speakers to develop their Spanish reading fluency while developing general reading skills with Spanish texts. The program may be used with Spanish-speaking students before or while a student learns to read in English. The program also helps native English speakers or others to learn to read Spanish text fluently as an additional language.

Read Naturally Live—Español is a Spanish version of Read Naturally Live that accelerates reading achievement by combining the research-proven strategies of teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring. A student works at his or her own pace in an appropriate level of material. Text and audio (completely in Spanish) guide the student through the steps. The student masters a story by reading along with audio and then practicing the story until he or she can read it fluently and with comprehension. The program automatically tracks student progress.

pointerRead Naturally Live—Español Rationale and Research

Read Naturally Live Steps​Read Naturally Live Steps
  1. Select a Story (Seleccione una Lectura)
    The student clicks on the story he or she wants to read. Choosing the story deepens the student’s investment in the material.
  2. Key Words (Palabras Claves)
    The student reads the key words and their definitions while listening to an audio recording. The key words provide definitions that are important to understanding the story.
  3. Prediction (Predicción)
    The student uses the title, picture, and key words to write a prediction of what he or she thinks the story is about. The prediction prepares the student’s mind for reading the story.
  4.  Cold Timing (Primer Intento)
    The teacher may time the student for one minute as he or she reads the story, or the student may complete this step independently. The student clicks unknown words while reading, and then clicks the last word read during the timing. Read Naturally Live subtracts the unknown words from the total number of words attempted to obtain a cold-timing score and displays the score on a graph. This step establishes a baseline for progress monitoring, the component of the Read Naturally Strategy that motivates the student to improve.
  5. Read Along (Leer Juntos)
    The student reads along quietly with a recording of the story, typically three times. This step is the teacher-modeling component of the Read Naturally Strategy, which helps the student learn new words and master others as well as learn proper pronunciation, expression, and phrasing.
  6. Practice (Práctica)
    The student practices reading the story without audio support three to ten times until able to read it accurately, with expression, and at the goal rate. This step is the repeated-reading component of the Read Naturally Strategy, which helps the student improve fluency, master difficult words, and understand the story.
  7. Quiz (Prueba)
    The student answers questions about the story. Responding to the text holds the student accountable for meaning, develops the ability to answer many types of questions, and provides teachers with information about how well the student comprehends the story.
  8. Retell (Volver a Contar)
    The student retells or summarizes the story to improve comprehension.
  9. Pass (Aprobar)
    The student reads the story for the teacher to show that he or she can read it at the goal rate, with appropriate expression, and with three or fewer errors. The teacher corrects the comprehension questions and the retelling of the story (if applicable) and reviews the results with the student.

Additional graphs show results for the comprehension questions, and the retelling (if applicable).

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.

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.

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,

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.

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!

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.

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!!!!

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!
