Directions for using Destiny are on the clipboard underneath the stand up checkout station.
Most teachers and assistants should know how to run Destiny.
Things to remember:
Students may NOT check out a book if they have a lost or overdue book. They must return the book or pay for what is missing.
Students may get no more than 3 books unless the teacher approves it.
When they check out, they need to use their card. They know where they are located.
If for some reason their card is not there, be sure to hit "RESET" then type in their lunch number.
When they come to checkout, look on the record that pops up on the screen to see if they still have books out. Read them the titles to see if they still have those books. That's how I sometimes catch the ones who did not check their book in correctly.

Turn on the camera (software is at the bottom of the screen. brainstorm ideas of what their family eats for Thanksgiving. Expect some weird stuff. Then have them draw a picture and write about what their family eats for Thanksgiving. - there is a word search on the back. Save them for next week if they don't finish. Only give them pencils at first. Then color the page of what they have drawn
