Lexia: Your child is working on the year-end goal of reaching level 10 (completing Level 9) using the Language Arts program, Lexia. Please help your child go to this website at home so that he/she may obtain this goal! We will also be working to reach this goal here at school. Go to Lexiacore5.com. You will need my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org for the first time that you sign in. Your child can login using their username and password Below I have broken the levels down by month. If your child completes each level listed by the end of each month, he/she should have no problem reaching Level 10 by the end of the year. Many children continue to work towards higher levels to better prepare them for 2nd grade!

We will be reviewing Kindergarten reading skills and spelling words for the first six weeks. During this time, students will have 4-5 high frequency words for spelling. Beginning week 7, spelling words will increase to 15 words each week. The lists will include 5-7 high frequency words, as well as phonetically spelled words. Students will later be writing a sentence for the test as well.
