The Activities feature on the Teacher App allows administrators and staff at your center to keep track of your students' activities and emotions throughout the day. Recorded activities are then viewable on a student's profile. By default, parents and guardians can also see these activities; you can change this setting on a recording-by-recording basis.

How to record an activity for one or more students

Navigate to the Home screen. Click the "New Post" icon in the upper right corner. Then select the icon for the activity you'd like to record.

The Recipients screen will appear. To find a student, you can scroll through the full directory, search by name using the search bar at the top of the screen, or tap the "Classes" drop-down to select a specific classroom. When you find a student for whom you would like to record an activity, tap the check mark to the right of their name; when selected, the check mark will turn blue. When you are done selecting names, tap the "Next" button on the top right of the screen.

The New Post screen will appear. Select a "Start" and End" time for your activity. To add a custom note to this activity, tap "Type here…" to bring up your device's keyboard. Type your note and then tap "done." You can also add a photo or video to the post using the two icons in the bottom left corner of the New Post screen. The left icon is to access the Camera Roll to attach photos or videos you've already taken and the camera icon will let you take a new photo or video to attach. You can attach multiple photos and videos (or a combination of the two) and Playground will take care of arranging them to fit the screen. When you're happy with your activity record, tap "Post" in the upper right corner of the screen. Once your post has been added to the feed, you can View Recipients of your post.
