"Just-Right" Content in the LightSail Library
Let students discover the joy of reading as they explore new books, classics, nonfiction, science, history - the possibilities are as vast as their interests! It's easy to search for titles, genres, authors, or subjects - and make notes for assignments.
Power Texts Ensure Student Lexile Growth
When students take the Power Challenge, they learn their Lexile reading level - and LightSail personalizes their library showing them books in their personal ZPD (zone of proximal development), indicated by a lightning bolt.
Support Reading Instruction
Whether your students are at school, at home, or both, the Teacher Dashboard helps you monitor LightSail reading behaviors, including minutes read, Cloze responses, current content, books abandoned, reading pace... over 150 data points.
