This is where you find all the articles for K-2 learners. Choose from 5 subject areas covering Animals, Health, Science, Social Studies, and Biographies to help guide your students' exploration. Your students are all set for simple, safe, and fun research that will develop a lifelong thirst for knowledge. All articles feature authentic read-aloud audio that your learner can navigate independently. Also available in Spanish!  

Capstone Interactive

This is where you’ll find your eBooks – lots of them! Every book features read-aloud audio from professional voice-over artists (not robotic text-to-speech). There are stories for pre-readers, struggling readers, English language learners, and more.

PebbleGo Next

Just like PebbleGo, but for grades 3-5. The 5 subject areas are Social Studies, Biographies, American Indian History, US States and Science. English only. 

Capstone Connect

Connect ties it all together! Connect makes it easy to find content that’s the appropriate reading level for your learner. It can even show you what topics your child learned last year, and what’s coming up in the year ahead so you can make your summer learning as relevant to curriculum standards as you choose. Connect is especially useful for educators because it features detailed lesson plans called ‘Activity Bundles’, but families can use it too. Learn More About Capstone Connect
