Lesson Activity Finder Tool

The lesson activity finder is one of the numerous useful tools that Let’s Read English provides for members. The activity finder is an alternative route for parents to preview lessons or find additional practices for their children easily.

Each lesson in the curriculum has a rare activity number which is referred to in the lesson plans as an “LA Number”. These numbers can be detected either on the scope and sequence pages or the lesson plans in the Parent Dashboard.

You can find the activity finder in the lower left hand corner of the Student Dashboard. In order to use the activity finder, members can log in to the account of their children, type the Learning Activity (LA) number of a lesson into the Activity Finder and then click “Go” to open it.
