Fluency practice and close reading passages are gathered from Barbara Radner, Ph.D., and DePaul University.
We have created a library and adapted them to be appropriate for use in Lexie. 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.
In Lexie you will find available around 170 passages with included questions for checking the text comprehension.

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. They might not be perfect for fluency practice and comprehension. But still they are valuable sources of stories and texts that you can use to create a text for yourself. Just the way you need it. That's one of the reasons a text editor is available in Lexie.
