Lexia® Core5 Reading for Texas
“I am a strong believer of using Lexia® Core5® Reading to help students of all abilities build fundamental literacy skills. Struggling readers, especially English Language Learners, students with special needs and students at risk, have benefited tremendously from using the program. One of my fifth-grade bilingual teachers, with a class that is 75% bilingual, implemented Core5 with fidelity maximizing its potential. Her students achieved tremendous growth in their literacy skills becoming better readers overall and their STAAR scores improved as a result.”
