enlightened Active Learn Top Tips! 

I am very impressed that you are enjoying lots of reading on Active Learn (as well as your own real books at home) - Well done! 


Teachers are monitoring the use of Active Learn daily and updating book allocations regularly. We have noticed that some children have several books 'open' but not 'completed'. In order to complete a book, you have to complete all of the comprehension questions within the text. These are found by clicking on the small green bug icon - they appear on occasional pages. Once you have completed the question/s correctly, the bug will 'Go to sleep'. You can then complete the book, 'Close It' and then 'Rate It' with a smiley, 'o.k' or sad face.


We will then continue to allocate new books as you complete your books and they move into your 'Library'. 


Keep enjoying the wonderful world of books! xx
