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.
As you are "catching" letters point out physical features of each by tracing and labeling the shape verbally. For example: Look at the uppercase C. It curves from top to bottom.
You can put a letter on the magnet board and then draw the letter next to it as you draw students' attention to the features of the print.
Draw or place alphabet letter magnets on the board and say that you're trying to find a letter with a certain shape. Have your students identify the letter you described.
Invite students to find, name, or identify letters in their name or relevant letters you have already studied.
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling
Show students how they can form their "bait" into letter shapes with pipe cleaners.
Have students practice forming letters with pipe cleaners.
Show students how to "bait their hook" by hanging their pipe cleaner letter on the paper clip hook.
Show students how to fish for their letter.
If a students catches a letter that does not match their "letter worm", tell them to "throw it back" and try again.
Show students how they can place their letter on a matching letter sheet, basket, or alphabet board.
Independent Working Time
Have your students work independently to complete the task, having them lower their hooks into the container of blue filler and magnetic letters.
Enrichment: Give students a "sound" to fish for to work on phonemic awareness. For example, "James, you are going to catch a letter that makes the "L" sound." Have student say and then form the letter with the pipe cleaner to use as bait.
Support: Have students use a big paper clip or a pipe cleaner hook on a string to catch a letter. Then have them match it to the same letter on a name sample for example.
Check student's alphabet boards for correctness.
Wander as your students are working to watch as they match their bait and fish. Note students who are unable to complete the task.
Review and Closing
Tell the students that they did a great job at noting the features of print letters today.
Have students share their favorite part of today's activity.

In this lesson, preschoolers focus on the alphabet by learning the letters L, R, and K. Kids are guided through the classic children's story of The Lion and the Rat, with an accompanying curriculum that targets each child's understanding of the unique sounds these letters make.
