Lexplore Fluency Practice and Paired Reading
Lexplore Intensive is now Lexplore Fluency Practice!
Practising decoding and fluency during an intensive period is a method which gets quick results. We wanted to make even more clear what pupils are practising by renaming it Fluency Practice. The material has also moved into our Library, which means that teachers will get insights related to what pupils are practising (if they are reading digitally) and pupils’ progress is saved automatically so they can pick up where they left off each time.
Material for every reading level
There are ordered fluency books available for every reading level. No material has been removed in this update, and you will see the same exercises as previously found in Lexplore Intensive. We have simply made them easier to navigate!
Reading lists have become books
We have moved the reading lists to our Library, where you’ll find a series of books for every reading level. We wanted to give teachers the option to choose whether their pupils should have access to all the books or perhaps just one which focuses on a particular sound, and this is now possible!
Automatic recommendations for years 1-3
The youngest pupils, those in years 1-3, are automatically assigned fluency books at the correct reading level as determined by the assessment. We recommend that you carry out this reading training using the fluency books with the whole class between assessments to ensure that young pupils get the opportunity to practice decoding and fluency, regardless of reading level.
Red (low level) fluency books will automatically be distributed to pupils who are not yet reading (emergent readers).
For pupils who are “Emergent Readers”, we recommend referring to the Pre-Reading Level guide where you will find appropriate exercises and instructions to meet their needs.
The Pre-Reading Level guide will be found here!
Teachers can recommend Fluency Practice in years 4-9
For older pupils, fluency books will not automatically be distributed. However, if you have pupils who need extra practise, you have the option to choose which fluency books you’d like your pupils to read and recommend them.
When pupils log in to the Library, they will see which books have been recommended to them by their teacher. Experience has taught us that not all pupils are motivated by the fluency books, especially older pupils, which is why you have the option to recommend fluency books after each assessment. You know your pupils best.
We recommend that you share the fluency books at the correct level to the pupils who still need structured decoding practice and that they get this support in a smaller group setting. This mainly applies to pupils at the low and below average reading levels.
We recommend using novels and other types of literature for paired reading as fluency training in the whole-class setting in these year groups. This gives pupils the opportunity to practise other skills, such as maintaining the appropriate tempo and using proper intonation.
Additional recommendations and exercises can be found in our Teacher’s Guides.
Fluency books are located in the Library which you can access via the Portal. Click “Library” in the menu in the top left hand corner of your screen.
