Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, all students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 in all eight schools embarked on a personalized literacy journey using the Greenfield Learning Lexia platforms. This includes the Lexia Core5 Reading program for students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 and the Lexia PowerUP program for Grades 6-8.

The Lexia Core5 Reading program offers students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 individualized literacy instruction based on diagnostic data. Its blended learning design balances students' individual work with direct, explicit instruction activities and/or skill-builder activities during the Literacy block. Teachers have been using Lexia to complement classroom literacy instruction and provide differentiation through a menu of activities and learning opportunities. Lexia Core5 is designed with a range of learners in mind, building their phonemic awareness and phonics so they can move from "learning to read to reading to learn”. Teachers are using Lexia Core5 Reading during literacy centers or as independent assignments to be done at school or at home. The program gives teachers a diagnostic profile for each student so they can monitor ongoing skills development, including word recognition, vocabulary knowledge, syntactic knowledge and reading comprehension.

PowerUp blends online student-driven instruction with teacher-delivered lessons and activities while simultaneously addressing gaps in fundamental literacy skills while building higher-order thinking skills. PowerUp addresses the instructional needs of a wide range of students as it is personalized to the needs of individual students. Each student begins their journey in PowerUp based on their individual strengths and needs, and adaptive instruction differentiates learning as students progress through each of the three strands of PowerUp: Word Study, Grammar, and Comprehension. Embedded progress monitoring, actionable data, and scripted lessons have empowered teachers to deliver the exact instruction each student needs.

We are so incredibly thankful that this intentional learning resource is being used across the system as educators intentionally plan their Literacy blocks to meet the individual needs of each of their students.

Benjamin, Sawyer and Abigail have successfully achieved all foundational skills that are taught in elementary schools, as well as more advanced grade-level comprehension and analytical skills.

 Congratulations, Benjamin, Sawyer and Abigail, on successfully completing Lexia PowerUP.
