You've Been Virtually Book'd For April! Our Monthly eBook Program Using Capstone Connect For All Readers!


I have a fun and engaging new way to share eBooks around special topics each month. It's called You've Been Virtually Book'd Van Meter!  

I started creating these interactive choice boards full of eBooks last spring when we were all learning together at home.  It was such a hit, I have continued putting these together for our students and teachers each month. 

You can use any eBooks that you have in your collection to create a You've Been Virtually Book'd choice board. I use our NEW Capstone Connect to organize and create ours.  It's so easy and lots of fun...let me show you how! 
First, I logged into our Capstone Connect
I searched for Earth Day and recycling eBooks using the Title Search in Capstone Connect. 
Capstone Connect gave me the results of several eBooks.  I was able to filter just the eBooks. 
For the choice board, I need the book cover and link to the eBook.  For each eBook, you will find the link to the right of the book. 

To view the eBook, I clicked on All About Earth and the eBook...
...opened up in Capstone Interactive.  This let me view the eBook and also grab the cover image. 

I then clicked on Copy Link and took it to the choice board. 
I then went back to the You've Been Virtually Book'd For April choice board I created in Google Slides.  I added the screen shot of the book cover, clicked on the image, and added the link I copied to the image. 
When our students and teachers click on the book covers, it will take them straight to the ebooks within Capstone Interactive.  

We don't even have to login because by using Capstone Connect it takes us directly to the eBooks and PebbleGo resources every time.  

We love our You've Been Book'd program and can't wait to celebrate reading in one more way with our students as we share our You've Been Virtually Book'd program every month! 
I created a template that you can use for your very own You've Been Virtually Book'd too. You will find it here, friends.
