How to Assign Games or Exercises

- 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 ProgressAs 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.
Students will be able to identify the letters and sounds needed to complete a word.
Introduction (5 minutes)
- Review the alphabet with students. Go through each letter, or symbol in the alphabet, individually, and ask your class to repeat the sounds, or noises, after you.
- Remind your students that each letter has a special sound.
Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (10 minutes)
- After reviewing the alphabet as a whole, pick the letter you are teaching for that day, and review the letter and sound with the students.
- Have the students tell you some words that start with the letter and/or sound you are teaching. For example, if you're working with the letter D, give example words such as dog and mad.
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)
- On the board or on a piece of chart paper, make a few sample words with the students. Choose CVC words such as bad and red.
- Before this lesson, find a worksheet for your particular letter on Education.com. Worksheets that ask students to fill in the missing letters are especially helpful.
- Using that worksheet, review the first question or word on the worksheet.
Independent Working Time (10 minutes)
- After reviewing the first word on the worksheet, have your students complete the remaining words on the worksheet.
- Enrichment: Make a worksheet for students to find the missing letter in the middle of the word rather then the beginning.
- Support: Direct your students to draw pictures that have the letter in the word.
Assessment (5 minutes)
- After the worksheet is completed, have your students work with a partner to come up with three new words that start with the letter you are teaching in this lesson.
Review and Closing (5 minutes)
- Review the answers on the worksheet with the whole class.
- Take responses to questions by raised hands. Make sure to correct students who present wrong answers.
