Read Naturally's innovative, research-proven reading programs provide high-quality interventions and differentiated instruction for struggling readers of all ages and abilities – whether special education, ELL, Title I, mainstream, or adult – to improve reading skills, gain confidence and transform attitudes toward school and learning. Read Live, our most popular intervention and assessment tool, uses a powerful web-technology platform providing administrators the ability to easily deploy these programs on a single computer or across an entire district. Read Live features a reading intervention, Read Naturally Live and an assessment tool, Benchmark Assessor Live. Students work mostly independently in Read Naturally Live by reading high-interest, nonfiction stories and completing a number of activities including a vocabulary-boosting game, Wordtastic. This motivating and engaging curriculum and format builds students' fluency, vocabulary, comprehension and phonics skills. Read Naturally launched two new programs in 2014, Funēmics and Splat-O-Nym. Funēmics teaches the foundational skills of phonemic awareness to small groups of pre-readers or struggling readers. Students gain awareness of words’ syllables, rhyming, phonemes and phoneme manipulation using scripted lessons that correspond to interactive exercises displayed for students on an iPad. Splat-O-Nym is an iPad app designed to build vocabulary. Students independently play games that include over 7,000 synonym questions, 1,000 antonym questions, and 600 meaning-from-context questions. Other research-based interventions programs from Read Naturally include: Read Naturally GATE, Signs for Sounds, Word Warm-ups, One Minute Reader and Take Aim! at Vocabulary.Something looks off?
