MOBYMAX: Online Learning Support at School and Home

We are excited to pilot a web-based curriculum called MobyMax in our PK-5 classroom.  In addition to access at school, all students have access to MobyMax at home.  We are hopeful that this site will be a useful way for our students to practice skills during the school year, on those occasional snow days and during the summer months.

Features of MobyMax:

  • mobymaxTailored to your child’s individual needs.
  • Placement tests that identify strengths and needs.
  • Targeted instruction to “fill in” missing skills.
  • Systematic review sessions to keep skills fresh.

As an extra incentive for our students to use MOBYMAX at home, we are offering two contests.

Spring Treat:  Student who spends the most time on MOBYMAX between now and April 25 gets to select a class prize for their class.

Spring Break Contest: April 3-12 – Student who spends the most time on MOBYMAX earns a $20 Barnes and Noble Gift Card and a Chocolate Bunny!
