Skoolbo – Common Core is a great new site for elementary children to help with reading and math. Skoolbo contains dedicated areas for children, parents and teachers. Children are immersed in an incredible learning world and are highly motivated by the inbuilt rewards mechanisms. Parents and teachers are equipped with an array of tools to help them achieve wonderful educational outcomes for their children.

My students loved this game but it is a downloadable program and was not user-friendly to set up and it took up a lot of computer space. If it were a web-based program, we would have used it more often.
Just signed my school up for this. Will review next term.
after a couple of emails to set up my school and no reply, for 2 weeks, i’d have to say this is poor!!!
A great site for educational games in an online world.
Skoolbo is a graphically beautiful 3D world where children can race against peers or virtual characters as they practice literacy and math skills which are “randomly” chosen for their skill level. Mr. Hill pointed out that the aim is to keep children engaged in the game for at least three years through an engaging environment, progressively challenging content and unique rewards. The games are set up to reward children every 15-20 minutes of play and after achieving 5000 points (approximately 6 weeks of play), there is a graduation ceremony which includes a party hosted by family members in Jib Jab style animations. Children can also collect points/coins which can exchanged for cool rewards such as super hero costumes. The feature that parents and teachers will love, is the ability to receive detailed progress reports as well as the opportunity to receive emails and alerts notifying them of important developments in student achievement.
