PebbleGo Ebooks

We have been given a temporary login to a couple of Ebook platforms to see if we like them.  Capstone PebbleGo, PebbleGo Next, and the Capstone ebooks are available for you to use until February 15th.  Your kids can log in to read independently or they can choose to have them read aloud to them.  They can also log in from home, I believe.  There are several non-fiction books available, as well, for those of you who have students working on special projects.
