Does your child always want to use your phone, iPad, laptop or tablet to get online and play or watch videos?
This summer you can let them do things online that will help prepare them for the following school year.
At the top of this page is a link to the Student Links. On that page is access to Moby Max, the website mentioned in the letter you will receive with your class assignments on them. Use this to work on specific skills/lessons that your child's teacher has set for them. Also on this page are links to Tumblebooks and Mackinvia. If your child has been to the STEM lab before they should know how to login to this. If you need help with a login for Mackinvia you can email the STEM lab teacher and she will give you the information (keep in mind that over the summer she may not check her email every day). You can also find a link to the STEM website that has lots of links for educational sites. When you can, please visit the typing practice sites to help your child work on their keyboarding skills. This will benefit them in all of their classes for their entire school career.
Remember that when you follow these links you will be leaving the Kincaid website and all students should be supervised when utilizing the Internet.

Families can access digital resources associated with the math and literacy learning guides through the Summer Link webpage: www.cobbk12.org/cobblink/. Students who have not demonstrated grade level proficiency will receive additional resources through local school meetings between parents and the school staff.
