Biblionasium is here! The end to paper reading logs and SO MUCH MORE!
I am excited to announce that after winter break Rhame will begin using Biblionasium!!!
We will access it through our online library catalog, Destiny. So, after students login to Destiny one time on their device, they will not have to login again!
Here are just a few reasons this is a game changer for our school:
With Biblionasium you can:
Tailor reading programs to students' individual needs Monitor student reading logs, create reading challenges, help students expand genre choices and tailor reading lists – all online and un-lose-able! Build and administer programs by group, class, grade and by individual student, regardless of reading level.
Track valuable data Track and get Biblionasium reports on what each student is reading and at what level, using Lexile® measures provided onsite for thousands of books. Track progress of individual students, groups, classes or grades as a whole.
Keep kids’ organized in their independent reading Biblionasium’s virtual bookshelves help kids keep track of what they’ve read, what they like, and what they plan to read.
Foster peer-to-peer support Kids are encouraged to share book recommendations and share books, building conversation and connections around reading.
Supplement your “team” Biblionasium mascot and reading coach Chip Manzee motivates and entertains kids, challenging them and rewarding good reading behavior. Our virtual reading rewards and recognition complement your in-class acknowledgement of a job well done.
As educators, we know that students read better when they do it consistently and as part of a community. Biblionasium provides the safe environment and support to make a real difference in building students’ independent reading. We will begin implementation with grades 3-5 immediately after winter break and work to add lower grades soon.
