Search Activities

Use the activity search tool to find and preview activities for custom assignments and playlists. Waterford curriculum contains over 7,000 activities. To find exactly what you are looking for, use the tips below.

 

Use quote marks.

  • If you know the name of the activity or lesson, put quotation marks around it in the search bar to limit the search results. Without quotes, the search will look for activities that contain any of the search terms.

Use the filters.

  • If your search term brings up too many results, narrow them down with the filters.
  • You can also use filters to help you browse the activity library. Click Search with the search bar blank. This will bring up every activity in the selected Program (Math & Science, Reading, or SmartStart PreK). Use the filters to narrow down the results. Search for keywords once you have a better idea of what you’re looking for.
    The search tool opens with Reading selected by default. If you want to find something in Math & Science or SmartStart PreK, make sure you change the selection under Program.

Find keywords from reports and curriculum guides.

  • Use resources like skills taught guides, correlation guides, and getting started guides to get a better idea of the content available in the search.
    Find these at help.waterford.org/resources.
  • Student reports show lesson names. Search for these lesson names in quote marks to find relevant activities for your students.
