Parents (and other adults without school email addresses, which are required to create Teacher accounts) can create an account that allows them to be connected to a student but will not be connected to the student's school. 

^Register for Newsela #omit-nav

The first step is to create your own account. This account allows you to log in to Newsela each day to assign articles to your child.

  1. Go to www.newsela.com.
  2. Click SIGN UP.
  3. Choose I'm an Educator.
  4. You'll be asked to answer a few more questions. Make sure to click No in response to Are you a faculty member? 
  5. Verify your email address to begin using Newsela. To change your email address or if you need another verification email, use the links on the verification page.

^Add Your Student #omit-nav

Newsela automatically creates a class for any student to join in your Settings page. Students should be using the accounts they already created at school. If they don't have accounts already, you can help them create accounts by sharing your Class Link.

  1. Hover over your name at the top of the page and choose STUDENTS.
  2. Click Invite Students.
  3. Share the Class Link or Class Code with your student.

^Monitor Your Student's Progress #omit-nav

In order to see what your student is reading on Newsela and how they're doing, we recommend that you follow along with your student as they log in. Have your student click Binder at the top of the page. On that page, you'll be able to view how your student is doing on Newsela.
