Lexia Reading Core 5 has become very popular at NSE among early childhood, elementary, and special education teachers. As we have focused on our tier II and tier III reading interventions this year, there has been some concern about how we are meeting the needs of tier I students in the regular classroom. As a result, several classroom teachers have explored the use of the Lexia Reading Core 5 program. Several teachers piloted the program and were seeing immediate results. We have recently expanded the use of the program to kindergarten, first, third, and fourth grades. Our goal is to fully implement the program in grades K-3 next school year with a few licenses in fourth grade.
I believe that the use of the Lexia Reading Core 5 program will help enhance our already effective use of the Accelerated Reader program as a reading management tool, the impact of having a part time reading coach, a more intense and effectively monitored RTI program by a full-time certified teacher, and of course the effective implementation of our core reading curriculum in each classroom.
