Scholastic Book Club Ideas and a FREEBIE :)

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 No comments

There's nothing like that big Scholastic box being delivered to your classroom!  I think most teachers know about Scholastic Book Clubs, but if you don't or are not using it in your class, you are missing out on an AMAZING opportunity! Scholastic built my classroom library.  I can't even imagine how much money I saved by taking full advantage of everything the club has to offer!  Not only do they make it easy to build or supplement a classroom library, they put affordable books into the hands of students, which is the ultimate goal to me.
With the help of Scholastic, I have a list of some of the awesome benefits of using Scholastic Book Clubs in your class:

1.       Look for One Dollar Book Deals featuring Your Students’ Favorite Titles
Each month, Scholastic Book Clubs offers a wide variety of “$1 book deals,” making it easy for both teachers and parents to afford high-quality reads for kids to read independently in the classroom and at home. Be sure to also check out Clubs’ blog and social accounts for weekly dollar deals.  *This is my favorite gift idea for students!  I use $1 books for holiday gifts and end of year gifts.  I like to add a special personalized note on the inside cover for each student :)

2.       Grow Your Library Quickly with “Book Bundle” Collections
Every Scholastic Book Clubs flyer includes a great selection of book bundles, curated by our editors, for teachers to add up to 5 to 10 books in their classroom for only a few dollars! Topics range from real life heroes to holiday-themed collections to laugh-out-loud reads. *I have found the bundles to be a great resource for supplementing my Science and Social Studies units!  

3.       Get to Know the NEW Apple Recognition and Rewards Program
The Apple Recognition and Rewards program is a way to say “thank-you” for teachers—and students— who go the extra mile to foster a love of reading. Every teacher this year joins the program automatically. Check out additional rewards including free shipping, surprise gifts, Scholastic Teacher Magazine subscription discounts, and more to create a dynamic, book-loving classroom. *The program without the additional teacher rewards and bonuses is incredible, adding the teacher rewards is like a cherry on top!

4.       Utilize Monthly Rewards and “Bonus Points” for More Free Books & Classroom Supplies
Each month, Scholastic Book Clubs offers several ways for teachers to add even more free books and resources for their classroom, such as furnishings, educational games and posters. This year, every dollar a classroom spends on an order, the teacher earns “one bonus point.” For example, this October, schools that order over $50 will earn an additional 10 free books.  

5.       Introduce a New Teacher to Clubs  to help build her or his classroom library
Teachers who are already enrolled in Scholastic Book Clubs are eligible for special “bonus points” when they help new teachers get started with the program. This year, both teachers will receive an extra 250 bonus points to help build their classroom library full of free books!  *A total win-win!

Are you ready to get started???  Here's a short video that will get you on your way!

Oh, I have a freebie for you too!  Here is a GREAT WAY to get students excited about ordering from the monthly flier.  I made this several years ago and it has made a big difference in the amount of orders I received.

If you don't have time to do this activity or if your students are too young, always give students time in class to preview the flier.  They get SO excited about the books!  I like to put a copy under my document camera and read the titles while we peruse the books.  The students love this.  A good tip is to do this at the very end of the day so it's fresh in their mind when they get home!

Happy Reading!
