How It Works

The “Active Planner” from School Datebooks integrates the same content from all our planners into a fun, participation-based app which allows students to earn points – and prizes – for doing the things they should.

Students earn points by:
• Tracking assignments
• Eating healthy
• Planning ahead
• Being physically active at home
• Getting parent initials in the datebook
• Setting goals and managing their time
• Completing Active Challenges

More About Active Challenges

Students can then earn even more points by completing fun, active activities on various subjects: simply answering questions, acting out famous moments in history, or compiling a short video biography or book report!

In a nutshell, we’ve created a datebook encouraging students to physically participate in the learning process. We’re sure your students will enjoy the challenges — all while getting them on the road to success!

• What’s the word?
Students will use a vocabulary word in a sentence; then, create a video to show us they really know what it means!
• Science Rocks!
Maybe it’s an experiment they can do at home, maybe it’s a question about the floating rocks. It’s all interactive!
• Where in the world?
We’ll tell the student about a place, then they tell us something special about it!
• Back in the day!
We’ll give examples of historical event re-enactments, then encourage your students to get creative with their own!
• Eat Healthy!
Students will be challenged to send video evidence of their healthy meal choices or even to show us the difference between an artichoke and avocado!

Prizes

We will offer prizes of increasing size to the students with the most points!

• Rubber Bracelets
• Lanyards
• T-Shirts
• Phone Tri-pod
• Laptop & Phone Stickers

Here you can define the content that will be placed within the current tab.
