Make language arts an adventure.

Enter The World of Lexica™ for an immersive 3-D experience researched and designed to strengthen grammar, spelling, vocabulary and writing with embedded ELA games that inspire students to play in their free time.

The World of Lexica™

There are two seasons of The World of Lexica—Lexica: Unbound and Lexica: The Seeker. In both seasons, players explore a vast game world, which includes a virtual library, through new activities that arrive over the course of the school year. Voluntary reading is a central element of the experience. We included an English/Spanish toggle in Lexica: Unbound to help ELL students. The World of Lexica motivates students to read books independently, as well as play embedded ELA games.

Learning objectives:

  • Bolster specific skills related to reading, such as spelling, syntax, and vocabulary.
  • Increase the amount of time students spend reading challenging material outside the classroom.
  • Develop stronger reading behaviors and habits.
  • Build stronger writing skills, including revising, editing and critiquing.

Offering more than 600 books, our digital library enables students to browse and discover a variety of classic and contemporary books and authors.

Students can read the books on their devices even when they don’t have an Internet connection, and can add their own notes, highlights and bookmarks to personalize their reading experience.
