SKOOLBO Trial


Today we are trialling SKOOLBO.  Skoolbo is a great new program to help with reading and maths. Children are immersed in an incredible learning world and are highly motivated by the inbuilt rewards. Parents and teachers are equipped with an array of tools to help achieve wonderful educational outcomes for their children. And best of all – it’s free!
In Rimu Class, we are having a look at this to see if we think it is something for us to use to enhance our learning.  It certainly was a lot of fun so we are ready to review to see how it can benefit us.
For our first go, here is our leaderboard for the day:
