Katherine’s teachers encouraged us to use a particular computer program to keep up her language skills over the summer. As I was checking it out, I came across the following synopsis:
“Lexia Reading Core5 provides explicit, systematic, personalized learning in the six areas of reading instruction, and delivers norm-referenced performance data and analysis without interrupting the flow of instruction to administer a test. Designed specifically to meet the Common Core and the most rigorous state standards, this research-proven, technology-based approach accelerates reading skills development, predicts students’ year-end performance and provides teachers data-driven action plans to help differentiate instruction.”
These people are the ones teaching my child how to read and write? Thankfully, I know that most of this nonsense is filtered by Katherine’s wonderful teachers. Otherwise, we’d be home-schooling!
