HOW TO CREATE A PARENT ACCOUNT:
Parents - visit Edmodo.com and select the "I'm a Parent Button" on the homepage, just below the student and teacher sign up buttons. Complete the registration form, which includes your unique parent code, your relationship with the child and a valid email address. (Please email me FIRST for your specific parent code.)
My middle school social study classes have used Edmodo.com this past year for tests, quizzes, short exit answers, etc....and kids love it!
