Helping Students Master Foundational Reading Skills

Lexia Reading Core5 provides students immediate corrective feedback, multiple levels of scaffolding, and explicit instruction both online and through direct instruction with the teacher.

Students work independently to develop reading skills in a structured, sequential manner with a focus on:

  • Foundational skills to develop automaticity and fluency
  • Listening and reading comprehension with complex text
  • Academic and domain-specific vocabulary to improve comprehension

Each student follows a personalized learning path, with adaptive placement and pacing in activities designed specifically to meet the most rigorous standards.

Teachers are provided data-driven action plans - unique to each student - that are simple to interpret and drive differentiated instruction.

Within the first month of use, teachers will know each student's probability of meeting end-of-year, year-level benchmarks, and will receive the recommended resources and intensity of instruction necessary to change the trajectory for at-risk students.

Teachers can focus on instruction - without having to stop to administer a test - by using the program's norm-referenced, embedded assessment and progress monitoring.

Lexia Strategies for Older Students

Lexia Strategies is designed for remedial students in years 7 and above, requiring remediation reading. The program focuses on foundational reading skills, starting at year 1 skill levels, with a more mature, age-appropriate interface and a range of content that covers basic phonological awareness through advanced decoding skills, vocabulary development, and comprehension activities.  Lexia Strategies will help identify the remedial needs of each student and differentiate the instructional intensity needed to accelerate reading skills development.

Student-Driven Learning

Lexia Strategies develops foundational reading skills through an engaging interface designed specifically for struggling students in years 7 - 13. The activities incorporate high utility words and academic vocabulary with age-appropriate topics, while students develop the basic skills necessary for becoming successful readers.

When students first log into the program, they are automatically placed at the proper level and work at their own pace on developing their foundational reading skills in a mature, focused learning interface.   If a student begins to struggle in any skill activity, the program provides scaffolding, simplifying the task to allow students to practice that skill with additional support to help ensure success.  Once they demonstrate proficiency in this scaffolded practice environment, students return to the standard task to continue in the program.
