ClassHero is designed to be aligned to your scope in sequence, while still delivering differentiated, personalized practice for your students. As such, we recommend you assign practice based on what you're teaching this week. Assigning too many skills at once can leave students confused on what they should be focusing on.
1 to 3 Assignments Per Week: Use your Morning Message to create a mini-lesson for your students based on your scope & sequence
Unassign Skills Weekly: Review yesterday's lesson or address areas where you noticed students struggled
Use Morning Messages for Instruction: Recognize students by name by mentioning them in your video (your kids will love this) for completing their practice time
