Flipgrid Disco Library Is Rocking With PebbleGo Grids Ready To Go!

There is something rocking in Flipgid!  It's the....
...Disco Library and is packed full of over 10,000...
...Flipgrids with amazing discussion prompts created by educators, librarians and others including Skype in the Classroom, Tynker, California State Parks and more. 
One of my favorite connections is the partnership they have with our friends at Capstone Publishing with 23 Flipgrids focused around PebbleGo topics our students will love. 
The PebbleGo Flipgrids are focused around all of the different PebbleGo modules including PebbleGo Social Studies, Science, Biographies, Dinosaurs,
and Animals.  You will find the Audience and Subject next to each topic.   
To use one of the Flipgrids in the Disco Library, just click... 
...on the one you would like to use. It will open up a detailed description of the Flipgrid. 
From here, you can Add To Favs and... which Grid you would like to... 
...Add This Topic to.   
Once you have selected which Grid you want the Disco Library Flipgrid added to, it will open up and give you a chance to Update the Topic.  

I love this option, because it lets us personalize any Flipgrid by making changes and additions that are specific to our school community and students.  
Once that step is complete, the Topic can be shared and used right away. 
If you don't want to make any changes, grab the link or share on social media by clicking on the left hand corner of any topic.   
As you are looking through all of the amazing topics from Capstone, take note of the special things included in the Integration Notes.  There might be a link to one of their...
...books, like Katie Woo,   
or an idea for creating an Engaged Animal PSA,  
Creepy Creation Creation,  
Interview A Family Member handout,  and lots more. 
And one of my favorites from Capstone, You Should Read This Book where students can choose a book and create a booktalk to convince others to read it too.   
Today as I was preparing for a lesson next week, I clicked on Add A Topic... add one of my own to the Disco Library focused around researching and sharing one of their favorite topics in PebbleGo. 
I even tied in the PebbleGo Research Buncee's as an Extension under Integration Notes.  that our students have been using this year with PebbleGo, researching and writing. 

Our students have been using the PebbleGo Research Buncee's this year for research, writing and creating with PebbleGo. 

You can read all about this project and get the templates from Buncee here.
I also shared the PebbleGo Disco Playlist with all of my teacher friends at Van Meter by clicking on Share Playlist where it gives us...
....a link to copy and way to share on Facebook and Twitter. 

You will find the PebbleGo Disco Library Playlist here
Once logged into Flipgrid, you will find the Disco Library at the top of the page at this link.  

And don't miss all of the wonderful #FlipgridWeeklyHits listed at the top and on social too!
