All Payne students may play JiJi at home.

Difficult math concepts are taught using motivating visual games that require thinking multiple steps ahead to visualize and solve problems. Encourage your student to closely watch as JiJi teaches how to do each activity. JiJi shows where to click with a pointing finger. It may take your child 10 or more attempts to master an activity. Please do not help your child solve problems. It is best for children to learn through discovery
