Lexia Core 5

Lexia® Core5® Reading is a fun, computer-based program that has helped millions of Pre-K-5 students improve their literacy skills. The activities in Core5 support and build on classroom curriculum, and focus on developing reading skills in six areas: phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

How does Core5 work?

  • Students take a brief placement activity and begin the online program at a starting point that is right for them.
  • Teachers have access to student progress and performance reports, so that they can provide assistance when needed.   
  • In addition to the online program, students use paper-and-pencil and hands-on activities for practicing and extending skills.
  • Students earn achievement certificates when they complete levels. These certificates are a great opportunity to celebrate success and talk about newly-gained skills!

What skills does Core5 teach my child?

Core5 provides a structured and systemic 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
