I firmly believe that the folks over at Capstone's PebbleGo are GENIUSES!! I am in love with their database for primary students, and I cannot even imagine my library program without it. I have been using their database for years.
I introduce my kindergarten students to the program in the Spring when we study farm animals, and I reintroduce my first graders to the program in the Fall when we research Veterans Day. I have created single page research sheets to go along with each of PebbleGo's holiday pages ... NINETEEN in all!!
Even first graders can read/listen to nonfiction text and cite evidence in a report-like form. It's the perfect introduction to research and notetaking! How about a little sneak peek at the report form and a freebie for Martin Luther King Jr Day??
Happy Researching ...
