We Are on Biblionaisum!

Dear Parent,

I am pleased to tell you that I have enrolled our classroom on a website called BiblioNasium, Where kids
flex their reading muscles. BiblioNasium connects teachers, parents, and the kids to create a reading
community that will encourage your child to read more.  If you are a member of Goodreads, this is much the same.
Kids can keep track of their favorite books, log their daily reading, and share recommendations with each other.  I can also setup recommended and favorite books and add any kind of reading challenges we may come up with.

Although you do not need to join as a parent, there is also a parent component and you and your child can access BilioNasium from home. As a parent you will then be able to see our classroom’s reading lists, monitor your child's independent reading and even set up family reading challenges. If you wish, you may also want to give your child permission to connect online with friends and classmates to see what others are reading, to read book reviews, and to receive and recommend books.

To help your child login from a home computer
1. Go to www.biblionasium.com
2. From the top right-hand corner, select “Members sign in”, Kid’s Sign in
Their username is the same as they use here in school and their password is the same as well.  (Please email me if your child does not remember it).

To join as a parent
1. Go to www.biblionasium.com
2. From the top right-hand corner, select “Join Us” and follow the instructions. You will first be asked
to provide your child’s username and password (see above). That will connect your account to your
child and to our classroom.

Together, with the stimulation of this website, I believe we can motivate your child to read something
different, something new, and to see just how much they are reading. I am excited to provide this forum for the students to share their love of reading.
