What is SuccessMaker?
SuccessMaker is instructional software that provides elementary learners (Kdg.- 8th grade) with adaptive, personalized paths for mastery of essential reading and math concepts.
The program is highly interactive, addressing multiple learning styles and making students active participants in their learning. Many skills are presented in a game-like format, which are challenging and motivating, making students excited to use the program.
Our students go to Lobo Lab to do their SuccessMaker activities. They alternate 20 minutes of reading and math every other day. Although there is not a way for parents to check their child's SuccessMaker progress online, we would encourage parents to please call the school at any time to have reports ran and sent home. Parents may also stop by the school to see what is going on with SuccessMaker.
For every 250 correct answers, a student earns one Lobo Buck. Throughout the year, the students have two opportunities to spend the Lobo Bucks that they have earned. One Lobo Buck assembly is right before Christmas break. The other is scheduled for the end of the school year. During the Lobo Buck assembly, students are given their Lobo Bucks and then allowed to shop in the Lobo Lab store. Mr. Benson makes sure that the store is stocked with lots of items that the students will like.
In addition to the Lobo Bucks incentive, we also have Lobo Lab Point Clubs. Students become members in the Point Clubs according to number of correct answers that they have. Each week the points are determined and then certificates are given to the students during our Monday Morning Recognition Ceremony. The Point Clubs that are available are 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 750, 1000, 1250, 1500, and 2000. Please click on the Point Clubs page to see how our students are doing!
