Rosetta Stone® Reading for Homeschool - Why does my child think they are repeating their last level?
It may look to the student like they are repeating the level again because the background and the activities look the same, but they are just moving from the first half of the level into the second half.
Levels are broken in half to help with pacing.
In the first half of the level, there are 5 boxes on the screen (one for each activity) and under the boxes are smaller boxes along with a lock on the right-hand side. The boxes are the units in the first phase and the lock hides the second half. When students complete the first half they will see the screen pan across the place they are in and hear: “Great, let’s explore more.”
When students go into the second half, they will see a green star on the left (their completed work) and where the lock was, there are now small boxes indicating the units the student needs to complete to progress to the next level. It may look to the student like they are repeating the level again because the background and the activities look the same, but they are just moving from the first half into the second half of the level.
Some teachers find it helpful to tell the students before they start using Core5 that they must finish all the activities/units in the first half of the level before they can unlock the second half. They should look for the lock to be replaced by a star.
