Message from Mr. Howe – Online learning resource


I hope everyone is staying healthy and doing well.  I miss all of my students and look forward to seeing them very soon.  I just found out that we will be out of school for the next 3 weeks.  I know it is a very difficult time for everyone.  Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Usually I introduce Lexia Core5 to families around this time of year.  It is a fun online resource that figures out a students strengths and weaknesses in Language Arts, and then gives them practice in areas they need.   It is important that your child works without any help while using Core5.  If you help them answer questions, it won’t help them as much.  Let them struggle a bit!  If it is too hard, they should take a break.   Not all students have great mouse skills, so they may test a little lower than their actual ability.  But that goes away pretty quickly.

Lexia Core5 does not work on phones.  I do believe it works on tablets with the Core5 app.  It definitely works on PCs and Chromebooks.

The login/user ID is the students ID… for example

The password is L3x1@pass

If you are using the Core5 App, it may ask for my school email address, which is

If you have trouble getting in or are not sure what your child’s ID number is, please let me know.  You can email me at or text me at (916) 799-4497.

Thank you for your support!

Steven Howe
