HOW DO YOU ASSIGN LESSONS?
It is not necessary to assign lessons in MindPlay. MindPlay’s initial tests and review tests determine the path though the program. Lessons are assigned automatically and adjust based on the learner’s answers.
Kindergarten learners are expected to master all the sounds in the English Language and understand how to spell them (phonics). They are only assigned these skills appropriate to their grade level: vocabulary, reading comprehension and fluency.
1st Grade through 12th grade learners are assigned lessons based on their tests. The most struggling readers start with phonics and English spelling rules. This sequence helps them learn how to spell and read words with accuracy automatically. As they progress they are assigned these skills appropriate to their grade level: grammar, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency*1
*1 if a learner struggles in these lessons and a sound misunderstanding is indicated, the program automatically assigns any sound lesson necessary and then returns the learner to his or her path.
