Scope and Sequence

Lexia Reading Core5 provides all students—from emerging readers to on-level and advanced students—a structured, sequential, scaffolded approach to the five areas of reading instruction—from phonological awareness to comprehension. The program creates personalized learning paths for each student through adaptive placement and pacing in activities aligned to the Common Core and other rigorous state standards.

Read overview documents on the six areas of reading in Lexia Reading Core5.


Phonological awareness activities include identifying, segmenting, blending and manipulating syllables and sounds in words. Phonemic Awareness is a component of phonological awareness that focuses on individual sounds within words.
Learn more about phonological awareness.

Phonics activities include the ability to apply knowledge of letter-sound correspondence to reading and spelling words. In addition, phonics activities involve pattern recognition of syllable types, rules for syllable division and simple spelling generalizations that are based on letter-sound correspondence.
Learn more about phonics.

Structural analysis activities include work on recognizing meaningful parts of multisyllabic words derived from Latin and Greek.
Learn more about structural analysis.


Automaticity is systematically developed through a series of warm-ups and activities focused on speed of processing. Fluency is addressed through activities that involve analysis of sentence structure and ultimately the timed silent reading of passages.
Learn more about automaticity/fluency.

Vocabulary activities are structured to teach word-learning strategies, to provide exposure to rich and varied vocabulary words, and to allow students to develop an awareness of word relationships and associations.
Learn more about vocabulary.


Comprehension activities develop the ability to understand information at a concrete level as well as an abstract level through the application of higher order thinking skills. Activities develop comprehension strategies through interaction with increasingly complex narrative and informational texts. Learn more about comprehension.
