Select All, Tags, and Filter Buttons

Ever feel like you’re drowning in a sea of games and worksheets, desperately wishing for an easy way to organize them all? Well, have no fear, because we’ve got a handy little trick to share with you!

 

Tags, and seeing games or worksheets only

First off, you’ve got options—view just worksheets, just games, or both. But here’s where it gets really cool: we’ve added these nifty things called “tags” to level up your search game. Picture this: you’re exploring the “Note Reading” category. You can zero in on specifics by picking subtitles like “Space Notes Only.” But wait, there’s more! Dive even deeper, and you can focus exclusively on the “Bass Clef Only.” It’s like a treasure hunt, but with less digging and more finding.

Now, these tabs aren’t just there for decoration. They’re your secret weapon to quickly discover exactly what you need. Once you’ve rounded up the gems, it’s time to put them to work. Assign them to your students or give your library a makeover—it’s your call.

 

Select, deselect, and select all

Ready to select homework for your students? Just click on the ellipsis and tap away on the thumbnails of the games or worksheets you want. Simple, right? And if you change your mind, just tap again on the selected thumbnail to deselect. But here’s the real game-changer: our “Select All” function. Feeling a bit lazy or just want to speed things up? Click on the folder title, and bam, everything is selected. It’s like a shortcut to organizational bliss! And here’s the beauty of it – you’re not stuck with everything you’ve selected. Don’t need that one odd worksheet? Just tap to deselect it. Your teaching, your call!

How to select all with one click

This little trick could be a game-changer for you, and the best part? Many teachers haven’t discovered it yet. So go ahead, try it out, and make organizing your educational goodies a breeze!

More Functions with the Ellipsis

Exploring the depths of SproutBeat reveals a trove of features beyond the obvious interactive games and worksheets. What if you want to assign content to your students or organize your favorites into specific folders? Well, there’s more to the app than meets the eye, and it’s all tucked away behind the elusive ellipsis!

To unlock these hidden treasures, simply tap on the ellipsis and unveil additional functions. In order to print, organize, or assign, your first step is to select the games or worksheets you’re interested in. This selection is made possible by a simple tap on the thumbnail. Let’s dive into some of these behind-the-scenes capabilities:

 

Library or Categories View – 3 functions

Ellipsis for Categories

In this view, you can print selected worksheets for your students. Note that printing is exclusive to worksheets, so accidental selection of a game will disable the print icon. Keep in mind that the print function captures everything on the page, including any markings. If you desire a pristine worksheet, ensure all markings are cleared before hitting print. The organize function empowers you to create a personalized “My Library” tailored to your studio. For sending games or worksheets to your students, utilize the assign icon. Students, in turn, use the same icon to submit their completed assignments for grading.

 

Game View – 3 functions

Ellipsis for Games
When you want to share additional information or instructions about a game with your students, the note icon is your go-to spot. By attaching a general note, you provide valuable insights or guidance that can enhance the learning experience. It’s a thoughtful way to provide context, tips, or encouragement, ensuring that your students get the most out of their learning activities. Alongside notes, you’ll find the organize and assign functions within the game view.

 

Worksheet View – 7 functions

 

Ellipsis for Worksheets
Given that writing and drawing on worksheets are integral, we’ve enriched this experience with three exclusive icons: undo, redo, and clear. Undo reverses the last stroke or drawing, redo replays the last erased stroke, and clear wipes the slate clean. Importantly, the clear icon respects boundaries – a teacher can’t erase a student’s markings, and vice versa. We certainly wouldn’t want accidental erasures in either direction!

 

Turned in Worksheet View – 7 functions

Ellipsis for Turned In worksheets
In this grading worksheet mode, we introduce a function to send a worksheet back for corrections. This provides students with an opportunity to rectify mistakes and learn from them. Another exclusive feature in this view is giving a grade (and even attaching a sticker if you fancy). The percentage you assign as a grade equates to the points students earn – 100% translates to 100 points, and so forth.

SproutBeat goes beyond the surface, ensuring a comprehensive and customizable teaching and learning experience for both educators and students alike. The app’s array of features is designed to empower and streamline the educational journey.

The “Remember me” button on the login screen is a fantastic convenience! By simply checking the box, the system will keep you logged in, saving you the hassle of logging in each time you start your teaching day. It’s a small but incredibly helpful feature that streamlines your experience and ensures a smooth transition into your SproutBeat sessions.

And it’s not just beneficial for teachers; it’s great for young students as well. With this feature, they don’t have to constantly go through the process of logging in every time they want to complete their homework or engage with the app. It simplifies their learning experience, allowing them to focus on their assignments without any unnecessary interruptions.

However, the log out button is handy when it’s time to switch user on the same device. Simply click on the button and you will be prompted with the login screen, ready for the next user.

It’s all about making the SproutBeat experience as user-friendly and efficient as possible for both teachers and students. It’s these little details that make a big difference, creating an environment where teaching and learning can thrive effortlessly.
