Usage Recommendations

There are a variety of ways you can use Boost Lectura to support your students’ reading journeys, both in and outside the classroom.

  • Students in Grades K–2 should play Boost Lectura for a total of 30–45 minutes per week, broken up into sessions lasting 10–15 minutes each.

  • And, if using both Boost Lectura and Boost Reading, schools should consider the following when deciding how they are used together: Instructional model, schedule, instructional needs, literacy goals. These considerations will drive further decisions on professional development and lesson planning.

    • In general, we recommend that Boost Reading and/or Boost Lectura be used for approximately 30–45 minutes per week for each student. This may include a combination of Boost Reading and Boost Lectura use for an individual student, depending on their instructional needs and goals. The use of both programs is flexible enough to allow for use in any instructional model.

Note: All active time a student spends in the program is counted for usage reporting in teacher and administrator reporting.

Suggestions for when and how students can use Boost Lectura:

  • During small group or center time

  • During choice time

  • During intervention blocks

  • As part of the SLA/ELA block

  • After school

  • At home

  • During school breaks
