Lexia Core5® works on all the core reading skills.
The way we recommend using it is spending 2-5 minutes in each of the 5 assigned activities each day. This program continues on up through 5th-grade level reading.
Headsprout Early Reading® provides focused skill instruction at the K-mid-2nd-grade level. Most kids find Headsprout® to be fun! We recommend doing a teaching episode one day and reading the Sprout Story the next day. Beginning readers can start reading Sprout Stories start after the first five interactive teaching episodes. At that point, they’ve enough letters and a couple sight words for their very first book! They build confidence as readers as they can immediately apply their new skills to a colorful book that only uses skills the program has previously taught.
RAZ Plus® provides leveled books for practice. Our recommended usage is in the reading assignments to read along 1-3x with a book, then read it yourself, then answer the comprehension questions. If you have a headset, doing a practice recording provides another reason to read it again. This repeated reading for different purposes is one strategy for building fluency. The student may also choose to just listen to an additional book that is at their interest level, but beyond their current reading level.
Dyslexia Gold® includes 3 elements and you can use any or all of these that fit: Fluency Builder® (phonological awareness, phonics, and fluency), Engaging Eyes® (visual training to help the eyes better work together for reading), and Spelling Tutor® (targets top 1000 most common words which make up 90% of written English).
Moby Max® is excellent for filling in skill gaps up through the 8th grade level. It starts with diagnostic placement assessments and then provides mini-lessons and short practice sets to address any skills not mastered. Moby Max® Language targets filling skill gaps in grammar, usage, and mechanics. We recommend 10 minutes daily working in the individually assigned lessons based on the student’s placement assessment.
InferCabulary® is a visual-based vocabulary program that uses gamification to motivate students.
