How to Select/Change Subject

Sumdog currently offers Math, Spelling, and Grammar. A free parent account offers access to Sumdog’s core Math subject games. You can explore more details of subjects, grade and year levels, and standards and curricula covered by Sumdog here.

 

Sumdog’s Spelling and Grammar (Reading) subjects, as well as additional features for a Math subscription, are available as part of the Family Subscription package. You can find out more about what a Family Subscription covers here.

 

If you have access to the full features from a Family Subscription, you will be able to select specific subjects and set work tasks for children linked to the account. You can also view detailed reports on progress. Any child linked to the account will also be able to select different subjects from their account.
