Amplify Student Home provides a space for students in the Amplify digital experience to access what they need each day. Students across grades K–5 will be able to view and interact with digital lessons all from one central location. This help article collection describes the complete digital experience.
How to access Student Home
Student Home will act as the entry-point for all students within the digital experience. Students will be directed to Student Home from whenever they log into Amplify at learning.amplify.com. There, students will be able to navigate to every program they need access to.

When students enter Student Home for the first time each day, they will see a welcome message followed by a check-in question where they will choose their own emoji for that day.
Teachers can view Student Home by going to learning.amplify.com/home where they see their class’s current list of assignments.
Student Home acts as a launch point into the digital lesson experience. When an educator clicks Start Class or Pull to Lesson, students will be pulled into the lesson.
Educators can also assign digital lessons that will show up in each student’s assignment stream. In grades K–1, each assignment includes a thumbnail, a lesson number, and subject.
In grades 2–5, each assignment includes a thumbnail, a lesson title, subject and a due date (if set by the teacher).
You can find more information on assigning in the section below.
Students can check off assignments when they are done. When they click on the circle, a checkmark will appear and the assignment will move to the Past Work folder.
How to assign lessons in Student Home
Within the assignment panel, teachers can schedule assignments in advance. This will determine the date and time the assignment will appear in Student Home.
Teachers can also set a due date. If teachers assign a due date, the assignment will continue to appear on their page until midnight on that particular date. If there is not a set due date, then assignments will disappear from Student Home at midnight on the day they were assigned.

If students need to access a lesson on their own, whether to complete a full lesson asynchronously or to finish an activity page at home, then that lesson should be assigned in order to appear in their Student Home.
If students do not have any assignments when they log in, then they will see a picture of an animal on their screen. Here, they can wait to be launched into the lesson by their teacher.
