We always anticipate learning loss over the summer, but this year, school closures could have even more of an impact on student achievement. Especially for our emerging and non-proficient readers, that’s just not acceptable. Teachers are the heart of literacy instruction, but when you can’t be one-on-one with your kids for whatever reason, resources like Lexia Learning’s literacy programs can help boost your existing lesson plans to accelerate student learning.
Lexia Core5 Reading and Lexia PowerUp Literacy are highly-engaging adaptive learning programs that can be used remotely or in-person. They empower teachers to differentiate instruction by providing ongoing student performance data (without testing!). Teachers also have access to offline instructional resources to support struggling readers as well as reinforce skills developed online.
This program serves students of all abilities in the younger grades with a fun, game-like environment on a platform of explicit, systematic, personalized learning—helping them make that critical shift from learning to read to reading to learn. Core5 hits all six areas of reading instruction: phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. And, because it’s adaptive, it can address skill gaps as they emerge.
PowerUp was specifically designed with older students in mind. The goal is to help struggling and nearly-proficient readers build fundamental literacy skills alongside the higher-order skills they need to read increasingly complex texts across content areas. It’s also great for secondary teachers who may not have expertise in teaching reading. PowerUp provides you with everything you need to meet individual students right where they are. Research shows that PowerUp is up to five times more effective than the average reading intervention program.
