How can students access Writing at home?

Students can play Sumdog's Writing games at home, however, they will need approval from a parent first. This only needs to be done once per student to activate writing at home.

Instruction for teachers:

Teachers should generate a consent code for parents to enter. This consent code is unique and time limited.

 To generate this code:

1) Click on Settings at the top
