What Is Core5?  

Lexia® Core5® Reading is a fun, computer-based program that has helped millions of students improve their literacy skills.

How Core5 Works
  • Students begin the online program at a starting point that is right for them based on the results of a brief placement activity. 
  • Progress and performance in the program are reported directly to teachers so that they can provide assistance when needed. 
  • Paper-and-pencil and hands on activities are used for practicing and extending skills. 
  • Achievement certificates are earned when students complete levels. These are an opportunity to celebrate success and talk about newly-gained skills.

Scope & Sequence

Core5 provides a structured and systematic approach to six critical areas of reading:

  • Phonological Awareness—recognizing sounds in words  
  • Phonics—understanding the connection between sounds and letters  
  • Structural Analysis—recognizing meaningful parts in words  
  • Fluency—reading smoothly and with expression  
  • Vocabulary—understanding word meanings and relationships
  • Comprehension—understanding spoken and written language  

The Core5 Scope & Sequence has more detail of what is in each level of the program.
