How can I extend learning for my students in the classroom?

We have a range of resources you can use to extend and consolidate students learning as they work through Lexia, and after they’ve completed the program, as outlined below:

Lexia Skill Builders

Skill Builders allow students to apply skills they’ve mastered online in a pencil and paper context, providing opportunities to reinforce and extend their learning.  Pupils can use these independently, or with a partner or teacher/adult.  There are 89 Skill Builders available to use.

Lexia Connections

Lexia Connections provide a range of activity suggestions to introduce, reinforce and extend skills learned online in the classroom.  These can be adapted to meet the needs of individual pupils, small groups or a whole class.  Each connection includes several suggestions, which cover speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, enabling students to develop their skills in ways which would not be possible through online learning alone.  There are 91 connections available which cover all levels of the program.

Supplemental Comprehension Lessons

These are fully scripted lesson plans, which can be used with small groups or whole class to develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, again extending learning from the computer to the classroom.  They cover a range of texts and provide opportunities for students to develop their critical thinking skills, collaborate with their peers and compare and contrast ideas across multiple texts.

Close Reads

The Close Reads provide opportunities for critical reading and analysis of a variety of real-world texts.  They are designed for upper primary students, covering Core 5 Levels 15-18.

Further information about all of the above can be found in the Core5 Resources Hub at

None of my staff have a login, what do I do?

Contact the Lexia technical support team on and request that a ‘School’ admin account is set up. You will need to provide the following details

  • School Name
  • Site ID – (contact customer care to get this if needed)
  • Staff name
  • Staff email address – This will need to be accurate to allow you to set your own password.

 The member of staff will need to be verified by your head, so with this in mind, it is a good idea to make this request from the Head’s email address.
