Educational resources to enrich learning experiences!

The Learnathon is truly underway! Children from around the world are taking on the challenge of answering 1,000 literacy, math, and language questions, which is resulting in fantastic improvement in essential foundational skills. These superstars of learning are being encouraged by family and friends who are pledging their support in the thousands! 100% of funds raised goes directly to the participant’s teacher in the form of credit to spend in the new educational resource shop.

We thought it was time to share a little teaser of some of the fabulous classroom resources that will shortly be available to teachers to spend their Learnathon credit on. We are working with a number of top educational companies to provide resources that aim to both enrich the learning experience of students and save valuable planning time.

Ensuring that children develop higher order reading skills and get the most from their guided reading sessions can mean long hours spent on planning. Now, that task is easier with these incredible ready-made reading resources from children’s newspaper publisher, First News.

The team of educators and journalists at First News have created a brilliant range of focused, leveled tasks based on real global news. Like authors, journalists play with language, so news ‘stories’ are rich nuggets of text to investigate. Children need to use the higher level skills of inference and deduction to have an in-depth understanding of what is being reported.

News reports are unique non-fiction texts that naturally engage students, helping them to develop their knowledge and understanding of the wider world. The reports are ideal for short, focused comprehension or discussion activities. They provide children with the opportunity to find fascinating facts and to recognize and appreciate the opinions and viewpoints of others.

First News has been producing their original children’s newspaper for over ten years. From reluctant readers to high achievers, First News leads to deeper thinking, stronger classroom debate, and real improvement in literacy skills.

Calling all parents – pledge your support!

We are always looking for new and exciting ways to motivate and reward great learning, and now you can too with Learnathon!

Did you know that 94% of children master a new skill after only 20 minutes on Skoolbo? During the Learnathon your child will be challenged to answer 1,000 math, literacy and language questions, providing the opportunity for securing many of those essential foundational skills. And now you can provide some vital additional motivation by pledging your support.

Every cent you pledge will be converted to credit for your child’s teacher to spend on amazing resources in our new educational resource shop. This means that not only will your child receive recognition from you for their efforts and achievements, you will also be making a direct positive contribution to the learning resources available to them.

There’s a little extra motivation for players too! The Skoolbo team have created some exciting digital rewards that students can earn during the Learnathon. For example, answering 1,000 questions will be rewarded with a fabulous hypersonic jet!

How do I pledge my support?

Your child has their own dedicated fundraising page which shows how many questions they have answered so far and the amount they have raised through their efforts. All donations are handled safely via Skoolbo, so it couldn’t be simpler!

If you have been sent a letter by your child’s school then it contains the link to your child’s fundraising page. The letter is also available to you on the homepage of your parent dashboard.

Don’t have a parent account?

Then sign up for one today! It’s completely free and only takes a moment to set up. You’ll just need your child’s username and password.

Spread the word! Why not invite family and friends to pledge their support too! Remember 100% of funds raised will go to your child’s teacher.

Let the Learnathon commence!
