LightSail brings the best titles, complete with embedded formative assessments that engage students and adapt their reading experience to build stamina and ensure growth. Our Instruction Team has assessed nearly 10,000 of the most popular titles across 76 publishers to help build a library that will serve each of your readers, regardless of age, interest, or ability. The transition from print to digital libraries can be a big step, one that impacts your teachers, your readers, and your budget. But the acceleration in literacy and learning being experienced by the schools that have made the shift is speaking for itself.

The cornerstone of LightSail’s library is that students get access to personalized libraries filled with thousands of engaging, just-right texts to choose from based on their current Lexile®. These just-right texts are called Power Texts, which are in a student’s Zone of Proximal Development or ZPD. The Library adapts to each student, growing as they grow, providing them with higher Lexile® texts to reflect increased comprehension abilities. Now all students can discover who they are as readers through a broad and appealing library filled with great texts.
