Snapshots to Success

Leading the Way to Success

Mariama Carson was hired to turn around Riverside Elementary School, a school in Indiana that had struggled for some time. An experienced leader, Carson knew what to do. She renamed the school Global Preparatory Academy at Riverside 44 and restructured priorities. She began with relationship building by guiding teachers in how to actively listen to students. She encouraged her teachers to validate the importance of the role of parents in a child’s education. Regarding instructional programs, Carson conducted a thorough review and chose Lexia Reading Core5® as their primary literacy intervention—with a commitment to fidelity of use in grades K–5.

Amazing Gains for 5th-grade ELL Students

As an ELL (English Language Learner) teacher, I am a huge proponent of Lexia Reading Core5®. My fifth-grade students have made amazing literacy gains thanks to this program. I want them to be able to see everything they have accomplished and I find sharing their individual Core5 progress-monitoring data reports with them is very valuable.

"That Can't Be"

Our district was using Lexia Reading Core5® and the program identified some of our advanced readers as having ‘holes’ [skill gaps]. Our administrators said, “That can’t be. It’s wrong,” but we discovered that Core5 was right. Because the program identified holes that had previously gone unnoticed, we were able to address holes immediately using the program’s resources.

Gaining Independence

The greatest impact Core5 has had in my classroom is the independence it has given my students. They are able to quickly learn how the program works, monitor their progress, and successfully reach their goals independently.

Building Confidence

When I first met this young student, she was quiet, shy and always hesitant to read aloud, even in a small group setting. As she progressed through the many levels of Core 5, and as her confidence in her reading ability increased, so too did her willingness to participate in group read-alouds and other activities similar in nature

Determined

A few times each year, Lexia Learning holds a two-week usage contest for classrooms whose students are using Lexia Reading Core5®. The prize is a class pizza party and my students were determined to win. After the first week, we were in seventh place. I told them if they really wanted to win, they had to go beyond what they had done in week one.

Pride Becomes Contagious

For many children, life poses serious challenges. Learning takes a back seat and often, these children feel defeated before they begin. My colleagues and I understand this, but it doesn’t dampen our commitment to helping each child realize his or her potential.

Soaring with Lexia

One student has been so excited about Lexia that he worked on it every spare moment that he had. He went past his grade (2nd grade) and ended up finishing the 3rd grade levels.

Carry Over

When a child completes a level in Lexia, we have a huge celebration! Some children are able to fly through levels, for others it takes a little longer. When a child who has been struggling finally completes a level and he or she has that success, it is priceless.
