Recently, blended learning has gained popularity in K-12 classrooms. A blended learning approach combines student-led online instruction with teacher-led offline instruction (Powell et al., 2015; Staker & Horn, 2012). Blended learning may be especially beneficial for English Learners (ELs) as the approach aligns well with previously defined areas of effective instruction for ELs, including clear objectives, frequent assessments of student progress, and personalized learning (Espinoza, 2008; Francis et al., 2006; Goldenberg, 2012). This presentation describes the implementation of a blended learning program, Lexia Reading Core5, and highlights the ways in which Lexia Reading Core5 supports the reading growth of ELs in K-5 classrooms. Results from research studies conducted in K-5 classrooms will be shared to highlight the benefits of a blended learning approach to reading instruction, particularly for ELs.
