    WHAT IS BEANSTACK?
    Beanstack makes it easy to track everything you read, whether it’s a book, e-book, audiobook, or even the back of the cereal box! See everything you’ve read, share reading with friends, and keep your daily reading streak alive. Get motivated to meet your reading goals with new reading challenges and virtual badges.

    Students can log in to Beanstack through Clever.  Go to www.clever.com and follow any prompts, entering school name and logging in with the student's username and password.  (Username and password can be provided by the student's teacher or the school librarian.)  Once in Clever, tap/click the Beanstack app.  If you do not see the app at first, tap/click GCS District Apps on the left-hand menu.
