Our school is using Lexia Reading Core5™, a web-based reading program that provides the targeted practice and instruction students need to develop their reading skills. As an added benefit, students can use Lexia Reading Core5 at home. The older version of lexia is no longer in use so please delete that program and follow the directions below.
Getting started is easy!
1. Launch a web browser and go to http://www.lexiacore5.com.
· Create a bookmark for this web address or add it as a favorite.
· You will see a link to download Adobe Flash Player if you do not have it.
Note: iPad and iPad Mini users can download the Core5 app from the App store.
2. The first time you go to www.lexiacore5.com, you must set up your device:
· Click the Student/Parent button.
· Type in my Mrs. Reese's email address – firstname.lastname@example.org and click the arrow button to continue.
· You will not have to set up again unless you delete the browser’s “cookie” files.
Teacher Email (for setup) email@example.com_
Student Username – same as last year
Student Password - read for preK-1st Student ID for everyone else
Call the office if you have any questions – 303-655-2750
3. Allow or help your child to login. The username and password (above) is the same login they use at school.
Important! Please allow your child to work independently at his or her own pace. Provide encouragement, but don’t give away the answers!
4. Please try to ensure an average of 20-30 minutes per session. We recommend that usage be kept to a reasonable level – not too short and not too long. Pre-K students may need shorter, more frequent usage (10-15 minutes daily).

We are excited to implement a new web-based curriculum called MobyMax in our classroom. MobyMax is tailored to your child's individual needs, and I think you will be very impressed by how fast your child will excel while using Moby. Moby's features include:
-Placement tests that accurately identify where your child excels, and where his or her “missing skills” are
-Targeted instruction to “fill in” those missing skills
-Systematic review sessions that ensure that your child retains 100% of what he or she has learned
