Amanda Gorman, Our PebbleGo Featured Writer, Kicks Off Day 1 Of Read Across America! Look How You Can Too!

As we get ready to kick off Read Across America Week, we are getting ready to celebrate our Reading Is For Everyone Event at Van Meter.  
In fact, a lot of you are going to be joining in on this fun.  You can find all of the details here, friends. 
To go along with each day, I am putting together a choice board featuring each days...
 eBook board....
...and all of the writers featured in PebbleGo Biographies.  

The students will be able to click on the image of the PebbleGo Writers to read about any of them and we will also have a daily Featured PebbleGo Writer each day. 
On Monday, we are kicking off Read Across America with our featured PebbleGo Writer for Day 1, the amazing Amanda Gorman.  
In fact, she is the most recently added PebbleGo Biographies and we couldn't be more excited to learn more about Amanda. 

In her article, students can read about her Early Years, Becoming a Poet, Contributions and more. 
And my favorite tab, The Hill We Climb where readers can learn more about the beautiful poem she wrote and read for President Biden's Inauguration. 

There is also a video, 
...and Share What You Know sheet for teachers, librarians and families to use as a place for students to draw and write what they have learned about Amanda Gorman. 
If you already have PebbleGo, you will be able to grab the link, as shown in the image above, and add it to the...
...Let's Celebrate Day 1 (Amanda Gorman) choice board here
And guess what?  

For Women's History Month, our friends at Capstone have made all of the biographies for women in PebbleGo FREE for EVERYONE to use through March 30, 2021.  You can sign up here
And then everyone will have access to all PebbleGo Biographies about women, including Amanda Gorman.  You can find the link after you get the login information for this special offer.  

I will be sharing a new Featured PebbleGo Writer each day this week....all women too.  :) 

I also added it to the two new Reading Is For Everyone choice boards. 
Here is the one with dress up days and Amanda Gorman and... is the one without dress up days and Amanda Gorman.
