This new site feature allows users to choose from our hundreds of engaging learning
games and exercises to create assignments for students. See below for details and simple
instructions on how to use this exciting new feature.
How to Assign Games or Exercises
You've selected a game or exercise to assign.
From here, you have two options: Add the game or exercise to a new assignment, or add to an existing assignment.
If you're creating a new assignment, give it a name. Adding a description or due date is optional. Click "Next".
Select the child(ren) you want to send this assignment to, then click "Done". You will see a confirmation message once it has been successfully assigned.
How Children Can Access Their Assignments
Your students can log in through your Pro membership log-in, or at learn.education.com by entering the Classroom Mode code.
Once your child selects their profile, they will land on our main menu where they will see available assignments and due dates (if applicable).
To complete the assignments, students click on the games or exercises listed on the assignment page, play, learn, and have fun!
The main menu also allows students to see their progress in each individual game and exercise in the assignment.
Track Assignment Progress
As your child completes each assignment, you'll be able to track their performance
in the Assignments tab of our Progress Tracker. You'll also be able to make edits
to assignments from here, like removing games or exercises, or changing the due date.
Round plastic drinking cup with lid, or round food storage container with lid
Pebbles or sand
Drinking straw (a straight one, no bendies!)
Poster board or card stock paper
Black permanent marker
What You Do:
Start by putting the lid on the plastic container, and turn the container upside down. Trace around the lid, and then make another circle around the outer edge, at least 2 inches wider than the first one.
Use a ruler to divide the lid in half along its diameter, and then divide each of those halves in half. Have your child write the words for the four parts of the compass along the outer edge of each of the four sides. Moving from the top, clockwise, she should write “North, East, South, and West.”
Now open the container. Stick a blob of modeling clay or putty on the bottom of the container, and then fill the remainder to the top with pebbles or sand. Snap the container lid on and tape it, if necessary, to keep it secure.
Glue the container, upside down, onto the cardboard compass base you just made.
Take the sharpened pencil, and poke it through the center of the plastic container so that the eraser is on top, and the point is held by the putty and sand.
Now, cut a broad triangle and a square, both about 3 inches across from your construction paper. Cut a slit in each end of the straw. Slide the triangle onto one end and the square onto the other. Use a bit of glue if they seem to slip. Push the pin through the center of the straw and attach it to the top of the pencil eraser. If you flick the straw, or blow on either end, it should move freely.
Take your wind vane outside to a place where the wind is not highly obstructed. Help your child find north, south, east, and west on a real compass, and line up the wind vane accordingly. Wait for the next breeze; the arrow will point to where it’s coming from.
