Similar to the functionality available in Lesson Explorer and Activity Explorer, you can play digital Imagine Language & Literacy activities directly from Teacher Resources. However, Teacher Resources also provides the accompanying offline resources such as supplemental printouts, classroom activities, reteaching lesson plans, and other print materials to use in a blended learning environment. These offline materials correlate directly with Imagine Language & Literacy curriculum so you can plan lessons or one-on-one intervention sessions around the same actionable skills your students are practicing.
- Launching activities from Teacher Resources allows you to preview the activities your students receive and/or use the activities for whole-class instruction. It does not initiate a student's individual sequence or add data to reports.
- Create a playlist if you wish to assign the digital activities to students.
