SkoolBo Success

Super SkoolBo Stars

SkoolBo is an online tool that children can work on and seem to really love.  They can challenge other players and earn points for the answers they correctly answer.  We are new to SkoolBo so have not yet discovered all that it can do.  We do know though, that the activities and challenges are based on Literacy and Numeracy.

In our first ClassBo Challenge, we earned way more points than expected.  We set another two day challenge and have a goal of 5000 points.  This challenge is still in process.
The students in Rimu can see where we as a school are on the leaderboard against other SkoolBo schools around New Zealand.  

Today, Eli saw that we were third so took a screenshot of the leaderboard and emailed it to Miss Waho.
During the school day we were placing third.
Later that evening, Emily was working on SkoolBo from home so emailed through another screenshot.
Later that day, learner from home pushed us into second place.
Ka mau te wehi!!

    I'm just looking on this to see what place our school is.
    I think we should keep skoolbo because it helps us learn new words and some new math ecashines.
