Fluency practice and close reading passages are gathered from Barbara Radner, Ph.D., and DePaul University and made available as a free library in Lexie.

We have created a library and adapted them to be appropriate for use in Lexie. You will find available around 170 passages with included questions for checking the text comprehension. Reading passages are for students grade 1-8.

Range of reading tools and text customization options available in Lexie make it the perfect app for fluency practice for elementary school students. Especially for the ones with dyslexia and reading difficulties.  

Next to the full text customization you can syllabicate whole texts in one click or mark mirror letters. You will also find Text to Speech accompanied with additional options like word and line highlight tools. You can print such adjusted text to read them on paper. Therefore, the combination of amazing texts and range of tools offered is just amazing for struggling readers.

So far we've got really nice feedback and it shows there is a need for more similar reading materials. So in addition to Reading Passages library we've started creating and developing our own library with short stories. We'll be adding the first set of reading passages during spring 2022. They will be appropriate for all grades for the middle school.

Also, besides above mentioned reading passages, or adding any type of your own content, there are other libraries with classics available in Lexie. That way Lexie helps you use any kind of content for reading practice, easier learning or just casual reading. Check it out, it's really cool :)
