Our school is implementing a blended learning model to support students to become motivated, independent and engaged learners. Both digital literacy programs, Lexia Reading® Core5® and IXL, are dynamic, fun and personalized computer programs that help our students develop the foundational literacy skills to become lifelong readers and writers. The added benefit is that these programs can be used at home for extra practice. IXL offers extensive math practice as well.
Lexia Core 5 offers differentiated literacy instruction for students of all abilities. Available to all K-3 students. This is a research-based reading program that is guaranteed to work when used consistently. Individual usernames and passwords have been sent home. Please contact your child's teacher or Mrs. Georgiou (email@example.com), if you need assistance.
There is an app available for Lexia Core 5. To download, please click here.
IXL is a subscription-based learning site for K-12. It provides practice in more than 7000 topics, covering math and language arts. All students have their own account. Login information was sent home. If you have trouble logging in, please contact your child's teacher or J. Georgiou (firstname.lastname@example.org).
To reinforce what your child has learned at school, have him or her practice on IXL at home. IXL breaks down topics into progressive skills for each grade level and content area, and provides immediate feedback with question-specific explanations for every incorrect answer. This makes it easy for your child to practice the material he or she needs to fill gaps in learning, keep up with the class, and even advance in topic areas of interest.
