The Most Adaptive Reading Experience EVER
Starting with an initial adaptive assessment, LightSail automatically creates personalized libraries for each of your students based on their reading abilities. These libraries adapt as students grow, ensuring they are already reading "just right" books.
In order to get your digital program off the ground, LightSail comes pre-loaded with over 6,000 assessed texts for free. As your school's content needs grow, and you are ready to expand your digital library, LightSail provides access to over 4,500+ premium books at a wide variety of interests and reading levels.
KEEP STUDENTS LEARNING WITH EMBEDDED ASSESSMENTS & MOTIVATION BUILT RIGHT IN!
Progress monitoring is embedded into daily practice in a natural way. Students answer multiple-choice, written-response, and Cloze assessments throughout each text. As student ability grows, LightSail tracks achievement and updates the selections in each reader’s library – that way, students are always reading just right texts.
LightSail’s educators have also built several key motivators into the app! Students can track their progress against individual reading goals, check their Lexile scores and the number of texts they’ve completed and show off their achievement badges – all via their personal data dashboard. Readers can also chat with peers and teachers during the reading experience using LightSail’s in-app social network.
*LightSail’s new Content Builder will allow teachers to customize existing LightSail content and import their own text and assignment content to support students’ needs.
