Introducing PebbleGo!

I am excited to announce that your student now has another on-line database to use when doing research or for nonfictioin reading. It’s called PebbleGo.

If you have a student at ELV you will be familiar with PebbleGo. PebbleGo is designed for our second and third grade students. It offers four databases the students can use for reading or research. They are animals, earth and space, biographies, and social studies. The students will now have the books available on MyON and PebbleGo to help them learn more about topics that interest them, and grow in their reading skills. The only difference between the two is MyOn has 5 comprehension questions following each book and it lets the students know their Lexile Level and PebbleGo only offers the books. Both programs have the option of the books being read to the students.

The website for PebbleGo is www.pebblego.com

The username is Elkhornky and the Password is school (not case sensitive)

This can be used anyplace you have an internet connection.

I hope you and the students enjoy this new resource!
