Lexia® Core5 is a fun, computer-based program that has helped millions of students improve their literacy skills. NAPS students in grades K-5 can use Lexia® Core5® Reading at home this summer. The activities in Core5 support and build on your child’s classroom curriculum and focus on developing reading skills in six areas: phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Online activities include direct instruction and immediate feedback as your child learns new skills. For more information visit Lexia Support for Families page
ST Math is a visual instructional program that engages students in creative and rigorous problem solving, allowing them to see the math and grow. NAPS students in grades K-5 can spend 15-20 minutes a day to help JiJi the penguin get across the screen by solving mathematical puzzles. If children struggle with making sense of a problem, ask your student questions about what they see happening on the screen: What do you see? What happened when you clicked? What will you do now? Parents and caregivers can find helpful resources in the ST Math parent guide, Spanish resources and join the Facebook ST Math Home Community
