Resources to engage families in their child’s remote learning
Extended school closures have been demanding on everyone. Parents and guardians are being asked to help with their child’s education in brand new ways while balancing parenting, work, and managing stress during a crisis. At the same time, educators have had to adapt to remote learning with little to no time to plan for this major shift. To help navigate this unchartered territory, Lexia Learning is continually creating additional resources to help educators and caregivers support literacy learning remotely.
The resources below can be shared directly with families in your community to help caregivers feel comfortable using Lexia programs from home and to engage students in literacy learning beyond our online programming. Additionally, we recommend following Lexia Learning on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to learn weekly tips and tricks that can be shared with your staff and families on an ongoing basis.
Dedicated Family Webpages
We have created dedicated pages on our website for families. These pages are meant to help caregivers understand how Lexia programs work, how to log in, how to best support students while working online, and much more. Share the links below to help families set students up for success to use Lexia programs remotely.
Lexia’s Customer Success team is hosting a series of 45-minute webinars to support families with their understanding of the student programs. Include the registration links below in your communications with families to enable caregivers to get started with Lexia programs, support and extend children’s learning at home, and track progress.
At-Home Resource Hub
Lexia has created an At-Home Resource Hub to help families easily access materials beyond our online programs. The Resource Hub contains a library of offline, paper-based activities to extend students’ literacy learning. Teachers are encouraged to recommend offline activities to families based on their child’s performance in Core5 or PowerUp. These activities can be shared by teachers via email, printed packets, LMS/Google Classroom or by directing families to the At-Home Resource Hub. These comprehensive activities can be especially helpful if a student does not have access to a Core5 or PowerUp supported device at home to continue to support literacy learning offline.
Read at Home Newsletters
Additionally, Lexia has created optional, fun activity ideas you can suggest to families to promote reading through hands-on activities. Share the PDFs linked below with families or encourage teachers to include individual activities as part of their remote lesson planning. Designed for foundational through intermediate readers, most activities can be completed with everyday objects that families already have around the house.
