Students go to the Writing Assignment area to complete activities that you have digitally assigned.
The Writing Room provides access to interactive writing tools: Process Writing Workshop, Build-a-Book, and Write Your Way.
Kids Writing Library
The Kids Writing Library provides a library of your student’s published writing.
This area allows you to create a Class Writers' Wall and Class Writers' Bookshelf of appropriate student writing that is shared with the students in your class.
Students become published authors within their online class and can read each other's writing after you post it to the Kids Writing Library.
Students can use the dashboard to navigate to messages from you or their parents and to view notifications when they earn badges.
You can send students messages and award them bonus stars from the Roster.
Parents can also send messages from the Parent Portal.
Students earn stars by completing activities. They can spend their stars by customizing their avatar in the Avatar Builder or Raz-Rocket in the Star Zone.
You can turn these incentives On or Off in the Classroom Roster under the General Tab.
Students can check their reading progress and badges in My Stats.
You can check student progress from the Activity Report.
Badges reward students for achieving milestones and incentivize them to complete more activities. These badges will help students set goals and become more engaged in their learning.
