Okay, I know that it is actually Wednesday. Yesterday I was helping to create a first quarter math assessment for my district, and my head was spinning by the end of the day. Keeping up with Common Core is going to make this year interesting!
My Tech Tool for this week is PebbleGo. This is not a free program, but it is a must-have for elementary schools. When working on technology projects in my grad classes, I find that many programs are geared for upper grade students. PebbleGo is ideal for young students who are just learning research skills.
When we do research projects with our technology facilitator and media specialist, we spend a good deal of time getting our students to cite their sources. Guess what-PebbleGo has a citation button making it even easier for students to get this information!
PebbleGo is a great way to get students into reading non-fiction passages. I love to put my rising kindergartner on this site to learn about animals. Oh, and there are some games too!
If your school or district is evaluating different programs to enhance your science and social studies curriculum, you should definitely check this out. I heart PebbleGo!
