    Lexia Reading Software:  (K-3 only, unless otherwise informed by teacher)

    1.    Launch a web browser and go to www.lexiacore5.com.

    ·     Create a bookmark for this web address or add it as a favorite.

    ·     You will see a link to download Adobe Flash Player if you do not have it. 
    Flash Player 11 or higher is required.

    ·     If you have a slow Internet connection and have speed issues, you can download the Core5 software to your computer instead of using the website. Go to www.lexialearning.com and click Downloads at the top of the page.

    ·     iPad and iPad Mini users can download the Core5 app from the App store. Search for “Lexia Reading Core5.”

    2.    The first time you access Core5, you must set up your device:

    ·     Click the Student/Parent button.

    ·     Type in your teacher’s email (edavis@rvusd.org) and click the arrow button to continue.

    ·     You will not have to set up again unless you delete the browser’s “cookie” files.

    3.    Allow or help your child to login. (username and password in separate email)

    Important! Please allow your child to work independently at his or her own pace. Provide encouragement, but don’t give away the answers!

    4.    Please try to ensure an average of 20-30 minutes per session. We recommend that usage be kept to a reasonable level – not too short and not too long. 
    Pre-K students may need shorter, more frequent usage (10-15 minutes daily).

     

    6th Grade Science Genetics Unit Resources

    Genetics of Harry Potter - National Institutes of Health curriculum explaining the genetics of magical creatures using Punnett Squares and patterns of inheritance
     
    Genetics of Bloops - Wards Science kit activity (but easily recreated from craft store supplies if you don't want to buy the $100 kit; see attached student handout - I can help you through the set up - once you get a set made, it's good for multiple classes for many years)
