Moby Max

Students have access to log in and play literacy and math games from home on a site called Moby Max. With our school license you have the ability to log in and play from anywhere. This is a great way for your student to get some home support and practice with educational skills. Ask your student about their login. If they can't tell you, contact your teacher for details.

This would be a great way to keep your student active over the summer.
