'the fact that teachers themselves do not have to be too actively involved in the setting up of tasks means that it doesn’t take up too much of the time.'

Lexia is really good as it focuses children on the aspects of reading that they struggle with and breaks that element of reading down in simpler chunks to try and support the child’s understanding. It’s levelled stages mean that children also manage to make progress and are getting challenged progressively as they work through the program. Finally, the fact that teachers themselves do not have to be too actively involved in the setting up of tasks means that it doesn’t take up too much of the time nor do the children lose their reading opportunities while waiting for their teacher to put more activities on the platform (an issue that happens with other online reading programs).
