Core5: Resources for Instruction & Practice
With Core5, teachers have the offline resources they need to provide direct instruction and intervention. As students work independently in the online activities, real-time performance data is collected through Lexia's patented embedded assessment system Assessment Without Testing®. Based on this data, Core5 recommends specific offline materials for both face-to-face instruction and independent practice.
Lexia® Close Reads
Close Reads are printable PDF resources created for upper-elementary students to provide opportunities for critical reading and analysis with a variety of real-world text types and engaging topics.
The full-color student readers are organized in leveled sets and can be used to develop fluency and comprehension while promoting higher-order thinking, collaboration, and discourse. The passages mirror those presented in Core5 activities and can be used to reinforce and build upon the online learning.
The detailed teacher guides can be used to facilitate critical analysis and higher-order thinking through text-dependent questions, collaborative activities, and peer discussions.
Lexia Lessons are scripted materials that allow teachers to provide explicit, multi-sensory instruction in specific skill areas.
Specific Lexia Lessons are automatically recommended for struggling students based on their performance in the online activities (indicated by a lesson icon).
These lessons can be delivered in a variety of ways, such as individual or small-group instruction within the classroom or during pull-out intervention with a specialist.
Lexia Instructional Connections provide teaching strategies and collaborative activity ideas to use with all students as a way to introduce, reinforce, or extend skills.
These innovative classroom ideas can help teachers structure individual and group activities that integrate speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
Lexia Skill Builders®
When a student successfully completes an online activity in Core5, the program provides a set of paper-and-pencil activities designed to reinforce and extend the learning.
Lexia Skill Builders can be incorporated into classroom routines or used for home practice to build independence, increase automaticity, and expand expressive skills.
