Then, we just log in with the teacher username. You will see there are students in your class and click on your name.
There are a few things on the screen for every area. If you go to Your Assignment, you will see check marks under some of your books. If the check mark under the ear mark, it means you have listened to it. If the check mark under eye ball mark, it means you have read that. If the check mark under question mark, it means you have taken the quiz. If you want to open the book, just simply click on it. You indeed can record yourself. It is great for kids to listen to themselves reading with expression and that is very important skill in reading. If you want to know the pronunciation of the word of the book, just click on the word. And after you did the activities, you will get points.
