We are excited to implement a new web-based curriculum called MobyMax in our classroom. MobyMax is tailored to your child's individual needs, and I think you will be very impressed by how fast your child will excel while using Moby. Moby's features 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 that ensure that your child retains 100% of what he or she has learned
Best of all, your child can access Moby from your home computer at any time.
Login steps for all students are as follows:
- Please go to www.mobymax.com/signin (school code pa4653) or www.mobymax.com/pa4653
- Ensure your child’s name appears after they have initially signed on. The school code is unique for Perry School students.
- Students in Mrs. Sexton’s class have their first name as their username and first name as their password (all lowercase)
Once logged in, your child will immediately start the lessons and begin improving his or her missing skills.
You can sign in as a parent as well by selecting "As a Parent" and entering your child's username and password. You will be able to monitor your child's progress and even send messages to me.
This is a new online learning program for the students. I have used it in the past but have not had time to introduce it in the classroom. MobyMax is amazing and if your child rushes through their schoolwork each day or runs out of things to do, PLEASE introduce this wonderful tool. Your child and I will even be able to chat through the message option as they learn. Students will also be able to build certificates for completing tasks and it might be nice to have something new during this crazy time. HOWEVER, this tool cannot replace our normal schoolwork. Students need to still complete at least 50 minutes on each the Amplify and iReady app each week.
