What is the difference between the Online Subscription and the Bulletin Board Kit?

They are both viewed by the entire classroom. The Online Subscription is projected onto any digital media-board that has internet access. It is interactive. It is a virtual bulletin board. Zoom in, isolate a concept or two or three. You decide! The answers can be revealed for quick checking. It is the same great daily review--just in a digital form.

Are the virtual boards in any order?

The virtual boards follow the same layout of the Center Edition; however, the concept can be isolated and another problem can be chosen. This provides you with the flexibility to assess the concept mastery of your students. Some problems are more rigorous.

Do the Online Subscription have an answer key?

Yes, when you isolate a concept and select the "A" button, the answer will appear. A combination of questions (up to seven) can also be grouped together to reveal the answers. Answers are also included with the PDF response sheet.

How long does it take to complete a virtual board?

The short answer: at the beginning of the year, your students might need more time as they are learning new concepts, but by mid-year, it should take your students 10-15 minutes each day to complete the virtual board by the end of the week. At the end of the year, your students should be able to do the entire virtual board in 10-15 minutes, showing their mastery.

The long answer: you teach the concept and use our Online Subscription to master it with daily review. Decide how many and which problems the students review each day. You will be ready to introduce the response sheet to your students after you have taught a few of the concepts. It will take your students longer to finish the virtual board at the beginning of the year when they have to learn the concept. If the students have learned a concept in previous grades and are building on it, start with an easier virtual board. The idea is to spend 10-15 minutes a day on review. As you teach new concepts, those concepts will be added to the rotation. In our daily review, there are between 24-32 different problems. There are enough problems to last all year. Your students should be able to do the entire virtual board in 10-15 minutes at the end of the year, showing their mastery.

Are pretest and posttests included?

For a pretest, have your students do the entire virtual board at the first of the year. A posttest will be done at the end of the year by doing an entire virtual board. You will be able to see exactly what concepts each student knows and what they still need to work on.

The concepts for each number are listed on the coversheet. Having your students do an entirely different virtual board several days in a row, often during the year, provides excellent assessment. This is a great way to provide assessment for Parent-Teacher Conferences.

What if some of my students do the entire virtual board the first day?

With the Online Subscription, you can isolate only the concepts for that day. They will be seeing only the problems for that specific day.

What if I haven't taught the concept yet?

You can choose to do a mini lesson on that concept by choosing an easier problem, or you can display only the concepts you have taught. Add the newly taught concepts to the virtual board as you teach it.

What if I lose the response sheet?

We will send you a new response sheet via email--just let us know. We will need to know which product you are using along with the grade level.

What are the differences between the Kit and the Center editions?

When our Kit is displayed, it is big enough to be seen by the entire class. Our center is a 13"x19" flip chart. It is meant to be used in small groups (5-6 students). The print is likely too small to be seen by the whole class. It is excellent to use for teachers that do not have wall space available, or have stations set up in their classroom. Our Center edition comes with an answer key. Each page has set problems allowing for an organized and helpful answer key. The Kit has 500+ different board combinations making an answer key cumbersome and arduous.

How long does it take to complete the Center Edition?

What is the best way to display my cards?

The cards in our kits are to be displayed on a bulletin board, wall, cabinet, science display board, white board, etc. We suggest you use vinyl mounts which attach to the surface either using staples, colored duct tape, magnets, or pins. You can purchase the vinyl mounts from us or you can follow the DIY instructions that are included in the kit.

Mounting Instructions

The vinyl pockets are grade specific and are labeled to correspond with each set of cards.
The cards and vinyl pockets are labeled in the bottom left-hand corner with a code (e.g. 4-3).
The first number corresponds to the grade level.
The second number corresponds to the problem set.
Use the picture on the coversheet to see a suggested placement of the cards.
Adjust the card placement to fit the size of your bulletin board.
All of the cards fit in the vinyl mounts to provide easy organization and storage throughout the year.

Are the cards in any order?

The cards aren't in any order. This provides you with the flexibility to adapt the rigor to the level of your class each year. Some cards are more rigorous--use your professional judgment when selecting the order.

Do the Bulletin Board Kits come with an answer key?

No, there are over 500 different board combinations. Teachers will be using the cards in different combinations making an answer key cumbersome and arduous. The focus of our products is concept mastery, making the process more important than the final answer. Easy in class solutions: make an answer key at the beginning of each board change, or have the students solve the board together when it is complete. If you have an unique way of solving the problems, please share it with us!

How long does it take to complete the board?

What is the difference between the Online Subscription and the Bulletin Board Kit?

They are both viewed by the entire classroom. The Online Subscription is projected onto any digital media-board that has internet access. It is interactive. It is a virtual bulletin board. Zoom in, isolate a concept or two or three. You decide! The answers can be revealed for quick checking. It is the same great daily review--just in a digital form.

Does Mountain Language correlate with Common Core?

Yes, Mountain Language does correlate with the Common Core. In addition, add our Write Away Center to address your writing requirements.

Are the virtual boards in any order?

The virtual boards follow the same layout of the Center Edition; however, the concept can be isolated and another problem can be chosen. This provides you with the flexibility to assess the concept mastery of your students. Some problems are more rigorous.

Do the Online Subscription have an answer key?

Yes, when you isolate a concept and select the "A" button, the answer will appear. A combination of questions (up to seven) can also be grouped together to reveal the answers. Answers are also included with the PDF response sheet.

How long does it take to complete a virtual board?

The short answer: at the beginning of the year, your students might need more time as they are learning new concepts, but by mid-year, it should take your students 10-15 minutes each day to complete the virtual board by the end of the week. At the end of the year, your students should be able to do the entire virtual board in 10-15 minutes, showing their mastery.

The long answer: you teach the concept and use our Online Subscription to master it with daily review. Decide how many and which problems the students review each day. You will be ready to introduce the response sheet to your students after you have taught a few of the concepts. It will take your students longer to finish the virtual board at the beginning of the year when they have to learn the concept. If the students have learned a concept in previous grades and are building on it, start with an easier virtual board. The idea is to spend 10-15 minutes a day on review. As you teach new concepts, those concepts will be added to the rotation. In our daily review, there are between 24-32 different problems. There are enough problems to last all year. Your students should be able to do the entire virtual board in 10-15 minutes at the end of the year, showing their mastery.

Are pretest and posttests included?

For a pretest, have your students do the entire virtual board at the first of the year. A posttest will be done at the end of the year by doing an entire virtual board. You will be able to see exactly what concepts each student knows and what they still need to work on.

The concepts for each number are listed on the coversheet. Having your students do an entirely different virtual board several days in a row, often during the year, provides excellent assessment. This is a great way to provide assessment for Parent-Teacher Conferences.

What if some of my students do the entire virtual board the first day?

With the Online Subscription, you can isolate only the concepts for that day. They will be seeing only the problems for that specific day.

What if I haven't taught the concept yet?

You can choose to do a mini lesson on that concept by choosing an easier problem, or you can display only the concepts you have taught. Add the newly taught concepts to the virtual board as you teach it.

The Kit has 500+ different board combinations making an answer key cumbersome and arduous.

You can purchase the vinyl mounts from us or you can follow the DIY instructions that are included in the kit.

Mounting Instructions

The vinyl pockets are grade specific and are labeled to correspond with each set of cards.
The cards and vinyl pockets are labeled in the bottom left-hand corner with a code (e.g. 4-3).
The first number corresponds to the grade level.
The second number corresponds to the problem set.
Use the picture on the coversheet to see a suggested placement of the cards.
Adjust the card placement to fit the size of your bulletin board.
All of the cards fit in the vinyl mounts to provide easy organization and storage throughout the year.

Are the cards in any order?

Do the Bulletin Board Kits come with an answer key?
