Option 1: Log your minutes into Biblionasium! The county challenge is to read 1500 minutes, but we will reward you for more than 400!  Here’s how you do it!

Directions: 

    • Visit biblionasium.com and choose “Log in With Destiny.”
    • If prompted, enter the state of Georgia and Kincaid Elementary.
    • Students use their student ID number for the login and password. It’s the same as their computer login and library number.
    • Students add books to their Biblionasium bookshelf and then log minutes in the Reading Log.
    • Fill out the bottom of this page to turn in at the end of the summer.

What is Biblionasium?  It is a subscription website that K-8 CCSD students have access to all year.  It will replace Accelerated Reader at Kincaid Elementary in the fall.  Students can use Biblionasium to keep track of minutes, pages and books they’ve read. They can even create a list of books they want to read and share and review books with other students!

 


Option 2: Read six books of your choice! 

You can read to someone, with someone, or by yourself.  You can even listen to an audiobook!  Log the titles on this brochure and turn the log into your new teacher before August 9, 2019.

Is there a suggested book list?  A key factor in cultivating lifelong reading is being able to choose what to read, so students are free to read books they choose. At Kincaid, we encourage students to read whatever they want to during the summer.  That’s the fun part!


What if I need help?

Call the CCSD Customer Care Center at 770-514-2500, M-Th 7am-5:30pm, starting May 28th for Biblionasium login help.

You can also look at the login help resources on the Cobb Summer Reading Website at https://www.cobbsummerreading.com/reading-resources.html

Forget your student ID#?  Your parents can log into ParentVue to look it up.  It’s in MyPaymentsPlus if they use it to pay for school lunches and ASP.  They can also call the Kincaid Elementary front office to see about how else to get it.

If you like to use Biblionasium but don’t have access to the Internet, use the Biblionasium Log attached to this brochure and we will help you log in your minutes when you get back to school in the fall or…….
