Achieve 3000 & Moby Max

Students continue to use both self paced learning programs to monitor growth in reading and math skills. Many students have reached the maximum grade levels on Moby Max (GREAT JOB!). Most students are making positive growth on their Lexile scores as we proceed through articles in Achieve 3000. Students who read 40 articles and complete accompanying activities will receive special privileges and a wristband to acknowledge their accomplishments. Further rewards and incentives are offered for those who read 50 articles, 80 articles, and more.

If you have any lying around, please send the excess to school so we can create better hands on activities.
