Completing the Read Along Step

The Read Along step is a modeling step, where students actively read along with a recording of the story.

This step helps students learn unknown words and practice difficult words. It encourages proper pronunciation, expression, and phrasing.

A minimum of one Read Along is required to continue by default.

  1. Click Start Read Along.
  2. The student quietly reads aloud as the narrator reads each sentence. The student can click Cancel Read Along to stop the read along. 
    • Canceled read alongs do not count toward the number of completed read alongs.
  3. The student reads with the narrator until he or she finishes the required number of read alongs. On the right, the stars fill in as read alongs are completed.
    • When a read along is not in progress, the student can click the highlighted vocabulary words to see and hear their definitions.
  4. After completing the required number of read alongs, the student can either:
    • Click Start Read Along for more practice
    • Click Next to continue.
