  1. Rachael, I really like how you went beyond the scope of our secondary ed. age group and looked into the benefits of technology for younger students. This app seems to be very useful and easily accessible. Also, I like how you tied it all back to the Common Core State Standards. By doing this, you have gone beyond the discussion of technological relevance, and prove that students and teachers are fulfilling standards. The chart that proves the closing of the reading gap as a result of using this tool also enhances and validates your discussion. Wonderful post!

  2. I must say, I am impressed. It is important to be aware of how our future students are acquiring the English language. Even more importantly, as possible future parents, being aware of this technology and tool could really benefit our children’s language skills development. As Molly stated, it is remarkable that it is specifically designed to meet the Common Core Standards. Students can even use Lexia Reading Core5 at home to reinforce good language habits!

  3. Rachael,
    I want to suggest this to my mom. She teaches 3rd grade and this would be a great resource for her classroom. This would also be great to help those students who have trouble making the jump to middle school. I think we forget that there can be reading issues at ever level, and this is a good way to help those students. If some students are embarrassed about being behind in reading, they can do this at home to improve on their own without having to tell other students. We sometimes forget how many options are out there that can help students. This website is one that I will keep in mind when I begin teaching.

  4. I think any technology that will help kids progress with their learning at home is wonderful! In my opinion receiving some extra help from home instead of in a classroom reduces stress for me, which is great for kids who might feel pressured or embarrassed. This program really seems helpful for both students and teachers!
