Completing the Read Along step in Word Warm-ups Live

The Read Along step in Word Warm-ups Live is similar to the same step in Read Naturally Live. It is a modeling step where students actively read along with a recording of the story. 

Stories in Word Warm-ups Live use the phonics patterns taught in the same section. This step helps students review the patterns and practice difficult words. It encourages proper pronunciation, expression, and phrasing.

To complete the Read Along step:

  1. On the Read Along page, the student clicks 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, when the student stops the recording before it is finished, 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 page displays the number of required read alongs remaining.
  4. After completing the required number of read alongs, the student can either click Start Read Along again for more practice or click Next to continue.


  • By default, a student is required to read along one time as the narrator reads the story. Teachers can change the number of required read alongs.
