Freckle Implementation Ideas

Using Freckle for Homework

Logging in at home is easy. Students can access adaptive practice and assignments at any time with their classroom code and access to a computer.

Set expectations with parents

  • If you plan to have your students use Freckle at home, send communication to parents/guardians describing the program and providing log-in instructions.
    • You can utilize the Parent Pack found on your Teacher Home as a template! Just go to your name in the top right corner, click More Resources, and download the Parent Pack.
  • Students will need their classroom code to access Freckle. Many teachers write this on student folders, assignment notebooks, or laminated log-in cards to ensure it's always handy. There is also a space to write this in on the Parent Pack. Students can also access Freckle using QR codes at the log-in page.
  • For students without computer access at home: Access our Printables collection to print out differentiated worksheets to send home.

Use Freckle adaptive practice or targeted practice

  • Ensure students spend their time in a meaningful way by assigning or free choice:
    • Adaptive Practice
    • ELA Articles
    • ELA Skills Practice
    • Word Study
  • Try Assignments First Mode under Settings and/or edit student dashboard settings on Roster Page

Monitor student progress

  • You can track student progress by using the "Assignment Report" and share with parents using the "Report Card."
    • Leverage reports as an accountability feature for the students to ensure they were working on the correct practice mode/assignment.
