Price: Free to try
Platforms: iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch

Pros: Because play is exploration-based, there's no need for individual accounts, which makes it easier to share use on one device.

Cons: The layout is busy and may feel overwhelming to some students.

Bottom Line: It could be a valuable choice as a free time or station activity, but it isn't robust enough for meaningful classroom learning.

How Can I Teach with This Tool?

Sago Mini School is a collection of early-learning activities that lets kids explore. Kids can choose a theme like trucks, rainbows, baking, and more. The cute characters may be familiar to some kids from Sago's popular suite of apps. Use Sago Mini School as a downtime free-play option. There's light learning content embedded in the stories and activities, including things like letter tracing and simple mazes, but it's pretty superficial. There's not really enough structure in the app to make it an easy sell as a solid classroom learning tool. That said, it does have great kid appeal, and its open-ended approach lets students take the lead.

Overall Rating

Fun, colorful graphics and high-interest topics like trucks, ice cream, rainbows, and firefighters are sure to draw students in.


Light early learning happens through free exploration of open-ended play, short videos, and goal-directed activities. There's no feedback and little depth.


Students freely tap and swipe around to explore, though the layout can be busy and there's no navigation guidance or how-to help. A companion parent app can provide teachers with some limited usage data.
