BIBLIONASIUM

We are trying out a new web service and app called Biblionasium.  Mrs. Perisino is going to use it as her book club and will include grades 2-5 this year.  Students can search for books they are interested in, share and review them, and take part in reading challenges.  Participation is optional,  but we encourage kids to visit the website and play around.  The address is https://www.biblionasium.com

Sign in through the Destiny link at the top.  Here’s what you choose to get in:

  • Location: Georgia
  • School: Kincaid Elementary
  • Username: student ID#
  • Password: student ID #

The first challenge called Orientation is to read and log 11 pages!  That’s it!

SUMMER READING HAS ENDED!

As of Saturday, July 28, the Kincaid Summer Reading Challenge has ended!  We will be rewarding students that participated via the reading log or online at Biblionasium.  All paper logs are due turned into the purple box in the Learning Commons by Friday, August 10.  Late logs will not be accepted as we will only be ordering the exact amount of supplies we need for the rewards.  We posted a list of students that participated in the Biblionasium challenge on the library bulletin board.  They will automatically be included in the reward list and don’t have to do anything else.  We will be giving out rewards before the end of the month.  Great job everyone!

WE NEED BOOK FAIR VOLUNTEERS FOR FRIDAY!

As of  Tuesday morning, we have no volunteers for Mornings with Moms on Friday. We need 5 helpers!  We would love to have some Dads help, seeing as this is a momma event.

Here is a link to the Sign Up Genius page.  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4ba9ae23abfa7-kincaid

Please help us support our school PTA and the American Cancer Society.  Also, don’t forget to RSVP for the event, Moms, if you plan on eating with your child.  Please share with all of your Kincaid friends!

HOW SHOULD WE SPEND PROFITS?

Would you like to help us spend the book fair profits? Our first and most important goal is to buy beautiful new books for the Lindsey Learning Commons. And you can help! Remember, everything you shop for provides us with a monetary profit that we will use to directly benefit your child!
 
Students, parents and teachers can vote for their favorite author here:
You may have to sign in your Google account to take this survey.
If it doesn’t work, try this same survey on Survey Monkey.
 
The survey will close Friday, March 16 at 12:00 PM. We will share the results on our Facebook page.

Kids Can Purchase With an E-Wallet

What is the Scholastic Book Fair E-Wallet? It’s so cool! It allows a parent to:
-Securely give money to each of your kids to buy books
-Pre-authorize the amount to control kids spending
-Make funds immediately available for use
-Only get charged for what your child purchases
-Use a credit card remotely for payment
-Receive a refund for any monies not spent

On Friday, February 24, the E-wallet goes live. Go to our book fair homepage and click on the Get Started button next to the blue e cent sign.
