If the student is not signed in to a Google account on this browser, they'll be prompted to do.  Enter their Google email address and click "Next", then enter their Google password and click "Next" to proceed.

If they sign into (or are already signed into) a Google account on a browser with multiple email addresses associated with it, they will be asked to choose which email address they’d like to link to the Prodigy account.

5. Input your class code, then click Next.

Once a code has been input once, there is no need to do so again as the account will already have been linked.
