This website is wonderful resource for all students that can be accessed 24/7 from school or from home. It’s called UG2GO and includes Student Link (a site children use at school that gives them access to websites that are kid friendly and relate directly to their current units of study), Tumblebooks (a site that has hundreds of books children
can click on and have read to them or not), Live Homework help (this is through the public library), Noodletools (gives children help making bibliographies), Knowledge Ontario (a variety of approved encyclopedias, magazine articles suitable for elementary students), video streaming, the blogs for the Forest of Reading, and more.
When students are at home they can go to the UG2GO’s main address which will prompt them to enter the same Windows username and password that they use at school to get onto the school
network. Once they enter their Windows username/password they will go directly to the site and they can click on any of the resources and be taken directly to the individual resource without the need to login. Please take a few minutes to explore the site with your child. It is an important tool that will aid them in their education, and may make your life easier when it comes to homework and projects.
