Student Shop: A Brand New Feature in Stride

Our coin-based rewards system + your prizes =
Your Student Shop is Open For Business!
We love your spirit of rewarding students' hard work.  So we've created a place for teachers to incentivize learning with more options than games.  Welcome to your very own Student Shop, your online marketplace for classroom rewards!  Stock your Student Shop with prizes like these examples*, set the parameters for students to earn each reward, and elevate the learning excitement!
*These are examples only.  Prizes and rewards must be furnished by teachers/staff, parents, school community partners, etc., and are not provided by LTS/Stride. 
Here's How to Get Started:
Click on the New "Student Shop" tab
on your Teacher Dashboard.

There you'll see the Quick Start Menu for your Student Shop -- and it's as easy as it looks!  Since you are brand-new to this, you'll likely want to start with "Create a new product." 
Creating a new product will prompt you for  the details you need to enter about an item, in order to add it to your Shop.  Decide on a Coin Cost, a Limit per student, DescriptionUpload an Image and more!  You can go back andEdit a Product anytime you like.  Here's an example:
Soon, you'll have a collection of rewards to jumpstart student usage in Stride!  To view your product catalog, select the option for "Manage Products."  See how nicely organized:
The Student Shop will track your new orders each day, and tabulate your Order History for easy reference.  You can also set up Email Alerts to notify you when students place orders or when an item is out of stock.  Soon you'll begin to see which prizes are most popular, so you can add inventory!
Once you deliver a prize to a student, click on the hyperlinked status for "Delivered?"  A pop-up message from Stridelogin.com will prompt you to change the order status to "Fulfilled" (by selecting OK).
The Student Shop allows you the flexibility to turn off Permissions for individual students who may not be in good standing to participate. Once they've earned back that privilege, you can easily turn their permissions back on.
As soon as you have one (1) item added to your Shop, your students will be able to access the Student Shop on their Stride interface.  Instruct them to look for the "Shop" menu option.
The Student Shop is active in your Stride account today!
If for any reason, your school or district wishes to DISABLE the Student Shop functionality, your Stride Administrator may contact Customer Support at support@LTSed.com or 1.866.552.9192.
Be a Featured Contributor!  
We simply cannot wait to hear about the rewards you are offering, and your students' participation. Email Amy Frith, e-News editor, to share your ideas for the Student Store. We will publish a list of the best in our next issue!
