TeachSmart’s Daily Activities Plan feature enables you to pre-select and pre-load the activities you want to share with your class on any given day.
To begin, we’re going to review how to select and pre-load activities, which you do be selecting Daily Activities Plan in the top Home Page banner:
Upon doing so, you will be prompted to enter a group name for the Daily Activities Plan:
If you’ve already created a group, you will be prompted to select the group you want to add activities to:
Next, you will select the date on which you want to add activities. You can choose any date that falls after the current date, which in this example, is Feb 21st. We’re going to create our Daily Activities Plan for Friday, Feb 23rd, and in order to do so, simply click the day/date:
Upon selecting the appropriate date, you will return to the TeachSmart Activity page. From here, you can select from any of the activity categories to search for activities. We’re going to start by loading a Daily Routine activity:
All of the Daily Routine activities will populate the page; scroll until you find the activity, or activities you want to add. For this example, I’m going to add one Attendance Chart activity, which I do by selecting within the green “Add to Daily Activities Plan” box:
Upon that selection, the newly added activity will appear at the top of the activities list:
To add more activities for Feb 23rd, touch within the blue text box that reads, “Return to the Previous Category” in the bottom left corner of the page. This will return you to the TS Home Page and Activity Category tiles:
From here, we are going to add a Literacy/Phonological Awareness activity by clicking LITERACY:
Upon this selection, all the Phonological Awareness activities will appear. We are going to add the activity, Breaking Words Apart. Touch within the “Add to Daily Activities Plan” space, and the activity will appear in the panel above the activities list:
You can continue adding as many activities as you want for Friday, Feb 23rd and as you add the last activity, select, the green DONE button and you will return to the Home Page:
From the Home Page, you will see the calendar date is shaded to signify it has a Daily Activities Plan in place. The list of activities for that date are shown in the space to the right of the calendar.
When you are ready to launch all of the activities pre-selected for Feb 23rd, touch the space within the green, “LAUNCH ACTIVITY PLAN” box and the activity software, RMEasiteach, will launch ‘behind’ the TeachSmart software:
Along the bottom of the screen, you will find tabs for all of the TeachSmart activities you selected and launched. Shown here is the first, Daily Routine/Attendance activity we selected for Feb 23rd. All of the activities open to the teacher’s details page. To open the activity the children will play, select NEXT:
As children interact with the activities, they can select, LISTEN for instructions:
Leave the activities open throughout the day, and if you like, you can easily copy them to another date. Return to the TeachSmart Home Page and select, Daily Activities Plan from the top banner:
From here, you will return to the calendar preview page; select the day from which you want to copy the Daily Act Plan, or for our example, Feb 23rd:
Next, you will return to a page that looks similar to this example, select, COPY PLAN TO ANOTHER DAY and a “select a date” menu will appear:
Selecting activities for the Daily Activities Plan enables you to preload and launch activities to your TeachSmart interactive display so they are ready and waiting for you and the children in your classroom!
