The McGraw-Hill K-12 ConnectED Mobile app allows K-6 teachers in LPS to access much of the Reading Wonders curriculum content (eBooks, leveled readers, practice sheets, and additional resources) directly on an iPad.
NOTE: You will not login directly through the app. Instead, use Safari (on your iPad) to visit LPS.org keyword: Wonders and login, just as you would on your computer. From the Wonders dashboard, you should see a link on the right side of the page that says “Launch App.” (VIEW SCREENSHOT) When you tap that link, it should open the McGraw-Hill K-12 ConnectED Mobile app if you have it installed on your iPad. Otherwise, tap the link on the dashboard that says “App Store” to be taken to the download & install page in the Apple App Store.
To view content, you may download it to the iPad by selecting it within the app. Each piece of content is large and may take 5 minutes or more to download to your iPad. Consider this when preparing for the day – you would not want to introduce that wait time during a lesson.
When you have completed the week’s lessons, you may want to free up storage space on your iPad by deleting the previously used content. You can do this by opening your “Book Bag” and tapping “Edit”. You may then delete any old materials.
