Literacy Pro is the program our students move onto from Bug Club when they begin grade three. This program is utilised for all students from grades three through to grade six. Our school library provides the levelled Lexile books that students need in order to participate in Literacy Pro. Each week, students from middle and upper primary borrow one book from the library to support their learning in Literacy Pro.
Students are allocated their Lexile number based on the results they achieve in their initial Literacy Pro comprehension tests. This is done online before they start Literacy Pro. Similarly to Bug Club, there are comprehension tasks aligned with each Lexile book, and students complete these online as part of their homework after they have read the text. GVIC primary teachers appreciate that this program monitors student comprehension levels and assists students to select reading material at their individual skill level.
