Cool Tool - JogNog

Guess what?! We have a full, PAID subscription to JogNog (and an app in Amplify Market) where kids can join our classes and practice topics. It's a great tool for reviewing Math, ELA, Science, and Social Studies.

Here is how to get started:

1) On your computer, go to

2) Click on Sign Up for Free Teachers button

3) Pick a username and password you will remember, check the over 12 button, and then sign up button

4) Right as soon as you are logged in, click on STORE at the top

5) Right where it says, “enter your school license here” copy and paste this code: 67ba1254-2aef-4927-a78c-efa2f161acbf

6) Then, students sign up the same way except they go to the website above and sign up as a Student. Then, they enter your class code to join your class. The sign up process for students is similar to Edmodo.

If you need more assistance, please let me know!
