Adding, Editing or Deleting a Teacher Account

Adding a New Class

Quick Tip: Rather than just having all of your students setup within one class, why not setup several classes and split your children up into their phonics groups? This will help you in the day-to-day management of the accounts, while you assign levels, schedule homework and track the groups’ progress

Creating Name Cards

Setting a Schedule

Your Teacher Account gives you the functionality to stop your students progressing past a particular level and/or skill which means you can set class activities and homework without the worry that children will progress too quickly.

Understanding the Reports

Assigning Students to a New Level

Updating a Child’s Account Details

Transferring an Account Between Students

If one student leaves the school and no longer needs an account, and a new one begins, simply transfer the account – there’s no need to purchase a new one!
