Schedule Time for Learning
  • Try to set a schedule that will help your child reach their target minutes each week.
    • When students log in to Core5, they’ll see their personalized weekly goal on their dashboard. Look for the goal icon on the dashboard.
      • Pre-K: 15-20 minutes per week
      • Grade 1+: 20-80 minutes per week

Set Up for Success
  • Try to provide a quiet space for learning, and check the volume before each session. Headphones can be helpful but aren’t necessary.    
  • Let your child work in Core5 without help from parents, siblings or other caregivers. Core5 is designed to give support and instruction that helps students when they need it. 
  • Remind your child to work through an entire unit before moving on to another activity or leaving the program. The green bar at the bottom of the screen will move all the way to the right when the unit is finished.  
  • Tell your child to logout completely when they are finished with the program by selecting the red X in the upper right corner of the screen.

Check In and Track Progress
  • Watch the apple icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. This apple will turn red if your child is struggling with an activity or concept. 
  • Does your child know the directions and how the task functions? It may be helpful to explain the directions in your own words. The Core5 Buttons Guide will help you understand how the program functions.  
  • Discourage rushing or guessing by encouraging your child to take their time before choosing an answer. Encourage your child to keep trying—learning takes time!
