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.
