READING CHALLENGE

Who: Any SES Student

When: February 4 - March 3

Where: At School or at Home on Lexia

Why: To increase the use of Lexia and make students better readers!

  • Read Across America is celebrated on March 2nd in connection with the birthday of one of the most famous children’s authors, Dr. Seuss!

  • This celebration helps to foster a love for READING throughout schools across the country!  

  • In order to gear up for this important and fun day, Mrs. Israel is offering a Lexia challenge with prizes!!!!!

  • For the next four weeks, students are encouraged to go onto the Lexia Reading Core 5 computer program each night.

  • Lexia is a reading enriched program that focuses on key skills in phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.

  • Students move from level to level in the program gaining practice and mastery of specific reading skills.

  • The link for Lexia can be found under the student resources page on Shafer Elementary School’s website.

  • Students can log in through Clever and click on the Google email link.

  • They will then need to put in their email address (student#@nasdstudents.org) and their computer password.

  • On Monday, March 4th, Mrs. Israel will check to see which students have spent the most time on Lexia during these four weeks.

  • Students with the highest times in each class will be awarded prizes!

Someone to hug, Someone to read.
