It’s amazing, but sooooo EASY...
I am now in fourth grade, and we are currently using the Lexia Core5 app to help us along with similes, metaphors, poems, learning about planets, and other amazing things. The only two things that I disapprove of this app are: it takes an immense amount of time time to load. All my classmates are not completely typing fast and accurately, or spelling correctly. I am one of the only in my class and I think the reading parts of the levels are very easy and quick. I would like something trickier, like if the reading level got higher and higher, harder and harder as you went up levels. This sprang up when I started on level 15 and a few days later found myself on level 20. I didn’t understand and felt like I wasn’t working hard enough. If you could edit the levels a bit harder, I think class 4B would love that. Thank you,
This program was not intended to replace teachers. Many times people complain not realizing what the real issue is. When students struggle, as learning to read can cause. This program monitors, encourages, and helps them. If they continue to struggle, teachers are notified and even given tools to help address the issues.
This doesn’t mean they do it and if your student is showing lots of frustration then you should talk with their teacher.
The program is one of the few I’ve seen, as a teacher and parent, that targets specific reading, phonics, and phoneme skills.
There IS work involved with learning to read and it can be more challenging with a reluctant reader but this program is WAY above the rest in engagement and targeted help!
It tries, but app is broken
We use this app because it is required by my child’s school. However the letters are cut off at the bottoms in multiple areas. I’ve submitted tickets, the developers have not yet responded, it’s been over 3 weeks. It’s not encouraging for beginning learners when they continue to get the wrong answer to something they actually understand.
Overall the app is kinda slow. I do believe in time it’ll be more engaging and fun, but honestly overall it’s just boring. My daughter will sometimes just hit random buttons because she’s getting bored.
Hopefully the letter issues will get fixed. If this is something you are considering to add to your homeschool routine I would consider another app. It would be nice to see as a parent what and how the app tracks progress. All in all I’d give this a limp thumbs up.
Developer Response ,
Can you try changing the text size on your iPad? You can do this by going to your settings, and selecting General > Accessibility > Larger Text and then move the slider.
If that does not resolve the issue, you can reach out to the Lexia support team by calling 800-507-2772. We will be happy to help!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
