Lexia Core 5 Reading
Lexia is an individually tailored interactive phonics software program that is available in school to every child. Our children take part in Lexia Core 5 sessions as a whole class, in small groups or they work individually. When working individually, students are automatically placed at the correct level and work independently to develop their early reading skills. The program provides explicit, systematic, adaptive learning on foundational reading skills, scaffolding students as they struggle and advancing them to higher levels as they demonstrate proficiency.
If you have internet access via a computer or tablet, your child can continue their learning at home. Children who can commit to a daily 10 – 15 minutes on the program generally make good progress.
