We are excited to implement a new web-based program called Moby Max in our classroom. This website is similar to Scootpad, in that it is tailored to meet your child’s individual needs and provides your child with math and language arts skills aligned with first grade standards.
Some features of Moby Max include:
- Placement tests that accurately identify where your child excels, and where his or her missing skills are
- Targeted instruction to fill in those missing skills
- Systematic review sessions and lessons that help ensure that your child retails what he or she has learned.
You can access Moby Max by going to this link: http://www.mobymax.com/signin . Students have been introduced to the website and have access to practice on school laptops. With the snow days we have only had the opportunity to log on once. I encourage you to have your child log on at home to take their placement tests and explore the website. Placement tests (for math and reading) are rather long and can be challenging. Students are able to exit the placement test at any point, and should be able to return at a later time to complete the remainder of the test. I have instructed the students to give their best effort on each question!
Students will enter their same 6-digit Username and password as they use to log on to AR and their school laptops to log in.
If prompted, our school code is: oh430
You can sign in as a parent by selecting “Parent” from the drop down menu and entering your child’s username and password. You will be able to monitor your child’s progress and send messages to me. I am still learning about all of this website’s features, but would be happy to find answers to any questions you may have.
Don’t forget to check out Scootpad for more practice, too!
I hope you find these websites valuable.
