Elementary students can interact with the CodeHS Playground and elementary courses by being enrolled in a Section. A Course is a sequence of lessons assigned to a specific group of students, also known as a Section.
Assigning from the Sections Page
From your Elementary Sections Page, click +Create New Section.
Choose a name for your Section or Import a Section from Google Classroom.
Use the dropdown menu to choose a course to assign work to your section. Select Choose Later to add content to the Section at a later time.
Viewing lessons that are assigned to your students
Click on Sections, located on the left navigation bar
Create a new Section (and assign a Course) or select a previously created Section from the list of your Active Sections.
When the Section opens, click the Lessons tab which is located in the middle of the page
From here, you will be able to see the Lessons that are currently assigned to your students.
Adding Lessons to Your Course
Select Sections from the left navigation menu
Click into your Section > Click the Lessons tab
Scroll to the bottom of the page, until you see a blue + Add Lesson button > Click Add Lesson
Search for a lesson to add to your Section. You can search for a lesson with the text box or by utilizing the drop-down list to filter lessons by grade level.
Simply click on the lesson you want to add to your Section.
Once the lesson has been successfully added to your Section, it will appear grayed out. You will also see a green banner on the upper right corner of the page that lets you know when the Lesson has been added to your Section.
You can explore the different Elementary Course content available on CodeHS by clicking on Courses, located on the left navigation bar.
This tool allows you to choose which Lessons you want your students to have access to and which Lessons you wish to keep hidden. By default, only the first lesson is available to students when a Section is created. Clicking the checkmark icon will remove the Lesson and selecting the eye icon will add the Lesson to your Section.
Once the lesson is hidden from your students, it will turn gray and the checkmark icon will become an icon of an eye with a line through it, letting you know that it is no longer visible to your students.
Adding Lessons to Your Favorites
Your favorite lessons are saved to a special section of your left navigation bar. You can add lessons to your favorites by clicking on the heart that is located to the right of the lesson title in the Elementary Portal.
When you finish making your selections, you can access your favorite lessons by clicking Favorite Lessons on the left nav bar.
