Frequently Asked Questions
Why can't I access all the subjects?
Teacher Toolbox licenses for Mathematics and English Language Arts are sold separately. Please be sure that your school or district has ordered the subject you are looking for. If you aren’t able to access a subject you should have access to, please contact Customer Service at ToolboxSupport@cainc.com or (800) 225-0248.
Can I post PDFs and Interactive Tutorials from Teacher Toolbox to my district’s Learning Management System (LMS) or to Google Classroom?
Teacher Toolbox subscribers may upload student-facing PDFs (e.g., student lessons, quizzes, and activities) from Teacher Toolbox to Google Classroom or another password-protected LMS.
If you choose to post PDFs from Teacher Toolbox to your LMS, please be aware that files expire on June 30 of each year for purposes of Teacher Toolbox maintenance and updates. If you add files to an LMS, this expiration date may require that you reload these files after this date.
We ask that you do not post, email, or otherwise share answer keys or teacher-facing resources. Sharing these materials online enables students—both in your district and in other districts—to access answers to their assignments through search engines, which means students may miss out on valuable learning experiences.
We also ask that you do post the Read Aloud Trade Books (available only in Reading for Grades K and 1). These are licensed third-party content with restrictions on how they may be shared.
Can I print out and make copies of PDFs from Teacher Toolbox?
The PDF files within Teacher Toolbox contain content that is included in CA’s proprietary curriculum materials. These PDFs are provided to you on a limited permission basis.
In limited quantity and for use in your own classroom, you may print and/or make copies of student and teacher pages from lesson, practice, and assessment PDFs. Copies of these materials must include all copyright, trademark, and other proprietary rights notices contained on the original pages from which the copies were made. Except as specified in this paragraph, you may not reproduce, upload, post, transmit, download, or distribute any part of Teacher Toolbox content or information.
You may not print, copy, or share any pages from the Read Aloud Trade Books (available only in Reading for Grades K and 1).
Can I post or share direct links to Teacher Toolbox resources?
We ask that you do not share, post, email, or otherwise distribute direct links to Teacher Toolbox resources.
Where can I access the correlations and other resources found in the front matter of my Ready® Teacher Resource Book?
Select Program Implementation at the top left of the page to see correlations and other resources found in the front of your Teacher Resource Book. Additionally, the Program Implementation tab holds supports for classroom discourse and routines, Hands-On Activity sheets (Math), a Glossary of Words to Know (Reading), and more.
Where are the Ready Assessments and Assessment Teacher Guides on Teacher Toolbox?
Select the Assessment Practice tab to see the Ready Assessments and Teacher Guides.
Why do I sometimes see two versions of the same lesson in the Teacher Toolbox?
When we update our Ready print materials, we keep our older materials active on the Teacher Toolbox for one additional school year to support teachers who might be using those older materials in their classrooms.
Why are some of the Interactive Tutorials missing?
In some cases, there are no Interactive Tutorials to support a particular lesson. We are always working to boost our coverage of the standards, and we plan to include more Interactive Tutorials in the future.
Why do some of the Interactive Tutorials seem to be different than the Ready lesson they accompany?
Some Interactive Tutorials have different titles than the Ready lessons, often because they teach the same standards and skills in different ways or through slightly different content. Some tutorials are also designated as prerequisites and are intended to teach prerequisite skills to the standard in question. In these cases, the titles may not match at all.
Additionally, some Interactive Tutorials are correlated with more than one Ready lesson. The intent is to show that these tutorials can support the teaching of more than one Ready skill.
Why are the Interactive Tutorials stopping before the progress bar says it is complete?
Interactive Tutorials are i-Ready Personalized Instruction lessons that can also be used for whole class and small group instruction. There is a quiz at the end of the i-Ready Personalized Instruction lessons that are not appropriate for the whole class and small group use case, so these quizzes have been removed from the Interactive Tutorials in Teacher Toolbox. Because of this removal, the progress bar stops where the quiz would have been (i.e., when the lesson is complete). Removal of the quizzes also preserves the integrity of the quiz because it means that students using i-Ready will not preview the quiz before it is assigned to them.
Is there a student subscription?
No, Teacher Toolbox is a resource designed to provide teachers access to instructional resources that can be used for whole class or small groups to help differentiate instruction.
While there is not a student subscription, we encourage you to add student-facing Teacher Toolbox PDFs to Google Classroom or another LMS for the benefit of your students.
