Scholastic

Last month I read about how to earn 6,000 Scholastic Bonus Points. Six thousand points would be amazing! I've never had a book order over $20, but I figured it didn't hurt to try. Luckily, we had Back to School Night the first week of school, so I talked to the parents about this great opportunity. I suggested the Bob Books, along with about 10 additional recommendations. I told them that if we made our goal of $200, I would give every child in the class one free book. I was surprised by how receptive the parents were. They ended up spending over $330! I couldn't believe it! I was so excited and ended up with about 7,500 Bonus Points. I bought an ABC puzzle, some scholastic dvds, books for everyone in the class, and so many more books for our classroom!

Here's a picture of the free books for the class and the student orders - minus one who's mom picked it up in the morning. I forgot to take a picture of all my new, awesome books!


The kids were so excited to choose their own, free book, and I was happy we were able to do it. A huge thank you to all the parents who ordered! We couldn't have done it without you!

How lucky! I don't get a $20 book order very often either. Great job
