SuccessNet as a Parent Connection Tool!

There are 2 great tools in SuccessNet that will help facilitate better collaboration and communication between teachers and parents.

There is a setting that will put a digital copy of your Reading Street and enVision student textbooks in the student accounts. It is not the links to the digital lessons, but a pdf of the textbook. To show the link to digital textbooks in the student account, log into your grade level account. Then click on the arrow at the top of the page just to the right of an icon of a person and select “my account.

The next page has 2 columns; the right column shows “My Products”; just click on “Manage Products” at the bottom. The next page shows all the available products, in rows of Reading Street and envision, with small check boxes in the left column of products available to display. Select the products you want displayed, making sure from the middle column that you are selecting “student edition textbook”. After you have selected the products you would like displayed in the student accounts, click on “Add selected products to your class/group” at the top left of the page. On the next page you can select your class to assign the digital copy to, and can even just select specific students of you would like.

Here is what the student login would look like if you have done this process. Notice digital links at the bottom of the page:

Another way to increase parent communication would be to share with parents the “Parents” link at the top of the home page of the student account (see above). The parent link will let parents see their child’s lesson and test progress, see below.
