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, thubbard@scsc.k12.in.us  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!

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.

A good way to help your child be successful on the weekly spelling tests is to do a practice test.  Do this by giving your child the spelling words and have him/her write them as if it were a real test.  For any words missed, have him/her practice writing them five times each.  Then redo the test again.  Continue practicing in this way until the words are mastered.
