Snapshots to Success

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.

Digging In with Lexia

One student was struggling with the rules for doubling consonants in words. I was able to pull a lesson provided by Lexia and do a mini-lesson with the student on the rules and practice. When she returned to her computer program, and realized she could do it by herself, it built her confidence as a reader. Plus, she had the biggest smile on her face because she finally passed that level.

Beaming

As a classroom teacher, it makes me so happy to see my students enthusiastic about making progress. Being that each student is unique and progresses at a different rate, when I check their individual status and see growth beyond my expectations it makes me so proud.

Rewarding Moments

I have a student who struggled with reading from the beginning of the year. He would get frustrated because nothing seemed to work; one-on-one sessions were not working for him. I gave him an incentive to try to work on Lexia for a week, and I worked with him at the same time using the Lexia Skill Builders. Then I created an assessment based on the skills we had worked on and he passed it!
