Online Resources for our students to use this year:
Destiny Discover – This is the primary site where children can check out eBooks. They should be extremely familiar with how to login (Username: lunch number, Password: birthday 00/00/00).
Mackin Via – This is the site that houses all of the databases and some eBooks as well. The login requires the children to pick our school. (It should pop up as they begin to type.) Username: lunch number, Password: birthday 00/00/00. The databases are located in the toolbar on the left side of the screen. This is where they can find Pebble Go, National Geographic Kids, etc.
Lightbox – This is an amazing resource for all ages. It is found in Destiny Discover. (You will need to scroll down to the bottom of the page.) It is MULTIUSER interactive ebooks with videos, read alouds, etc. embedded right into the site. This means that multiple children/classes can use the site at the same time! It tends to be science/nonfiction related and there are topics for all levels.
Ebooks – Ebooks are available for checkout through both Destiny Discover and Mackin Via. Username: lunch number Password: birthday 00/00/00
