This is where Moby Max comes in. If you haven't checked out this website yet, go now! This is what my on level and above level students use during our daily WIN time. It gives them the needed practice with pencil/paper math problems that they need. Students take a pretest and the program places them into lessons they need based on their results. Differentiation at its best! The teacher can also go in and add or take away lessons as needed. I often add lessons that go along with the curriculum that week, and/or give enrichment lessons to students ready for the challenge.
There are so many things I love about this program. Not only does it differentiate daily math practice and keep students engaged during WIN time so I can work with my neediest kids, students can also log in from home for additional practice (parents love the ease of using Moby Max for math practice). Further, there are so many ways to keep students accountable and engaged within the program. Here's a quick example of a weekly progress report that I print and send home to families.
Even better - my district originally began using Moby Max three years ago for it's math component - but the best part is that the site is growing and adding more components very rapidly. Now students can also use Moby Fast Facts, Reading, Stories, Literature, Grammar, Language, Vocabulary, Test Prep and more! My class loves earning game minutes for the questions they complete correctly (we have random game days every few weeks for the students to cash in those minutes). They also love 'The Wall' where I post contests, polls and questions. While the students are working, they can send me messages with questions or comments. And, they can log in from home and parents LOVE the additional practice opportunity. Students love that they continue to earn game minutes and contests points even from home! It's way better than solving boring text book problems! Have I sold you yet?
Moby Max has many FREE components, but for a reasonable fee you have access to all of these great options I've mentioned. I love Moby Max so much, that when they contacted me a few weeks back to see if I'd offer a giveaway on my little old blog, I jumped at the chance since it's a program I have personally used and believe in!
