Lexia Core5

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Your child has been given access to Lexia Core5 Reading--a fun, computer-based program that has helped millions of students improve their literacy skills.  The activities in Core5 support and build on your child's classroom curriculum and focus on developing reading skills in six areas: phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.  

The program will begin with a short placement test of approximately 15-20 minutes.  This test is designed to access students' current knowledge and place them where they are ready for instruction.  It is important that you do NOT help them with this.  We want to make sure that students are placed into learning that will be most beneficial for them. 

The Lexia computer program will work on all devices that have Clever. If you have an iPad or tablet that can access Clever, you most certainly can use the iPad to do Lexia.  There is a clever app that you must download in order to log-in.  You will need to download the Clever app and Lexia Core 5 app on your iPad. 

You will be able to access Lexia through your child's Clever account.  If you need help with their Clever login, please email me at karenstevens@tomballisd.net or call my office number 281-766-8569.
