There, students will be able to navigate to each 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 a teacher clicks “Start Class” on their end, students will be driven to their teacher’s location in the lesson.
Teachers 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 bottom of the list.
How to Assign Lessons in Student Home
Within the assignment panel, teachers can schedule assignments in advance. This will determine the date/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 to 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.
