Congratulations on inviting families to register for a parent account on Kodable! Your decision to involve parents in their child's learning journey is an important step towards fostering a strong home-school connection.

Here's what you can expect after families accept your invitation:

Register for Parent Account with a FREE 7 Day Trial

Once families receive the invitation to register for a parent account, they have the option to register for a parent account and set up a FREE 7 day trial of Kodable.

By creating a Kodable parent plan, they will have access to the full curriculum and additional learning resources. After the 7 day free trial period ends, they can choose to continue with a paid subscription or revert to the free parent account.

What is the Parent Dashboard?

Once families have registered for a parent account, they'll have access to the parent dashboard. From the dashboard, they can monitor their child's progress, view student creations, and access additional learning resources to support their child's learning.

To view your student's progress from the parent dashboard, simply select a registered student from the left side of your screen. In this example, I will select the Lillian's linked profile.

Now you can see an overview of your student's account along with viewing their projects, progress, and the option to manage their account.

Looking for an alternative? Send home your class code!

Another way for students to play Kodable at home is by using their class code. This is the easiest and most user-friendly method to get your student set up to play at home! Follow the steps below to use this option to sign in.

First, either open up the Kodable app or click here to login. You will see this screen to login.

Next, you will want to select the "Play at School" button. This is a very important step! In order to use your students class code, you must select the "Play at School" option. Nothing about the game is different by selecting this option, it's just an easier way for students to login at home.

After selecting "Play at School" you will now see a screen to enter in your students class code. In the example below I've already typed in zoeylovescode. Select, "Go!" after doing this.

Next, your student will need to find their name in their class list. Once finding their name click the play button and your student can begin coding at home!

Note: Your students teacher may have picture or text passwords set up. In this case have your student select their picture password or enter in their text password. If your student doesn't know their picture or text password, please reach out to their teacher.
