Hear what kids and educators have to say about PebbleGo
The teachers at my school love PebbleGo because they find it easy to use. A major reason they love it is because the content is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards. They use PebbleGo to present new material on units of study, and they rely on it for teaching research skills.
My teachers love that PebbleGo levels the playing field for many learners by having a read-aloud feature which enables younger learners, English learners, or learners with reading difficulties the ability to acquire information on various topics. PebbleGo makes information accessible to everyone!
Why PebbleGo is an Indispensable Resource
My favorite thing about PebbleGo is how easy it is for the students to use. I can give about a 5-minute presentation on how to log in and navigate the program and then just let them go.
Capstone’s subscription databases are a wise investment in valuable assets that serve our entire K-5 and Special Ed population in ways that both students and teachers appreciate.
Why Students Love PebbleGo
How I Use PebbleGo
PebbleGo is one of the research tools our 2nd -grade students use for the “Barrow Peace Prize” project at our school. The project begins with each student selecting one of six nominees from civil rights history to research. They then create a persuasive video essay as well as a watercolor painting showing why their chosen nominee best displays the qualities of peace.
Our campus is a dual-language school in which pre-K–5 have two classes that teach in both English and Spanish. The teachers use PebbleGo to bridge the gap between these two languages by using the read aloud feature and using the PebbleGo Animales database. Even non-dual-language teachers use this feature when working with ELL/ESL students in their classrooms.
PebbleGo is usually the first platform students at my school use to learn about how to research. Students love PebbleGo because it is so friendly and easy to use! It is easy to navigate for our youngest students because of the amazing photographs and the voice that reads the topics. They really love the articles with videos and sounds.
