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.

Managing your SproutBeat account has never been easier! Let me walk you through this section where you can update your account and payment details, as well as make changes to your subscription plan.

Need a different plan? Make changes here

Who doesn’t love a bit of friendly competition, right? At SproutBeat, students earn points for every completed assignment, but what’s the fun in just collecting points? We’ve got an awesome system in place that lets you turn these points into your very own reward system. Let’s break down what these labels mean:
Understanding the labels
HW Done – a quick way to check how much homework your students have completed within a specific timeframe
Points – the points earned by students during this period
Point Balance – shows the total points available for students to redeem
Total Points – gives you an overview of the student’s overall points earned
Now, here’s the cool part: you can customize the date range. You can adjust the calendar to display the specific data you want. For instance, if you’re organizing a monthly challenge, you can easily reset the calendar to show the results. During the summer break, when students are on vacation, it’s easy for them to lose touch with learning. But with the option to reset the calendar and set up engaging challenges, you can keep them involved and motivated. It’s a fantastic way to encourage continuous learning, even when school’s out.
Redeem their hardwork
When your students want to cash in their hard-earned points, it’s a breeze. Just click on their point balance, enter what they’re redeeming, and the number of points they’re using. You can even keep track of all the points being redeemed by your students. And for those exceptional efforts, there’s a way to add ‘bonus points.’ Click the ‘+’ sign and reward deserving students with extra points – a little pat on the back for their outstanding work.
Top 50 Global Monthly Earners
Oh, and did I mention the global leaderboard? SproutBeat is available worldwide, so we showcase the top 50 students who earn the most points every month on the ‘Monthly Global’ list. Curious to see if your students made the cut? Just click and find out! The best part? The list resets every month, adding a touch of excitement and a global flair to your studio.

Interactive games VS. Worksheets
SproutBeat’s interactive games have completely revolutionized the way we approach grading. The fact that these games are auto-graded is a real time-saver. I mean, who doesn’t appreciate not having to spend hours pouring over piles of papers to grade, right?
Now, when it comes to worksheets, they serve as our digital theory books, offering a structured learning experience. When students complete these worksheets, they send them back to you for grading. There are two options when it comes to grading: Send it back for corrections or grade it as complete.
Mistakes? It’s ok, we can make corrections
When opting to send a completed worksheet back for corrections, it’s crucial to keep the markings to a minimum. Overcrowding the page can be overwhelming for students, and since they can’t erase these markings, it might hinder their learning experience. By keeping the notes and marks concise and focused on key areas for improvement, students can effectively grasp the concepts they need to work on. This approach ensures that when they receive their ‘returned paper,’ they can clearly understand the feedback provided and make the necessary corrections.
Yay! It’s all good
If everything looks great, simply mark it as ‘graded,’ assigning points that correlate with the percentage they receive. For example, 100% means 100 points, 85% means 85 points, and so on.
And here’s the fun part – you can also add stickers as a form of motivation. My students absolutely love receiving stickers on their completed worksheets. It’s a small gesture, but it makes a big difference in their motivation and engagement.
What teachers love most about SproutBeat is the ability to practice new concepts using interactive games. The instant feedback and self-grading features in these games are invaluable. Students can play these games multiple times at home, reinforcing their learning in an interactive and engaging way.
To ensure their understanding, I’ve started using worksheets as a form of assessment or mini pop quiz after their practice sessions with the interactive games. It’s a fantastic way to gauge their comprehension and review past concepts, all while cutting down on grading time.
SproutBeat has truly transformed the way we teach and learn, making the process efficient, interactive, and enjoyable for both educators and students alike. It’s a game-changer in the world of education!
