With schools trying to scramble to educate kids in new and unusual ways, don’t let it squash one of the best things of the year: Scholastic Book Fair!
As a kid, it was always one of the best days of the year. I would have a few dollars in my pocket that would be magically transformed into a stack of Scholastic books. I saw the same thing with my own boys. And by that time, it wasn’t just books! Scholastic has all sorts of educational items that sparked their imagination.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could still go through your Scholastic book order and choose some new books for your kids?
You can! And still support your child’s classroom teacher while doing it too.
Keep reading for more information about Book Nook, our reading community that is growing like wildfire on Facebook!
Scholastic Book Club
The whole class reads with the new Scholastic Book Club available for home. Teachers and parents can both access the Scholastic Book Club and make sure their students are still inspired through reading. There are the traditional Scholastic flyers that you can download and browse or send to a friend. Each flyer is age/grade-appropriate and has recommendations handpicked by the Scholastic editors.
Scholastic Book Club Pop Up
Scholastic Book Clubs has an online pop-up shop just for parents, shipped directly to your home, while still earning bonus points for your child’s class and teacher.
Even better, orders of $25 or more qualify for free standard shipping.
Scholastic Class Code
Just reach out to your child’s classroom teacher to get their code for checkout.
It’s a unique 5 or 6 letter and number code that ensures their classroom gets credit for your order.
If your teacher is unfamiliar with the system, simply direct them to the Scholastic website where they can login and grab the necessary class code so the purchases are credited toward the appropriate teacher/school.
Buy Scholastic Books
There are options for all ages, from preK through high school, and so many deals to be found. There are five book value packs, priced under $20 to keep your kids reading, all your favorite characters, and non-fiction to help delve into interests while you’re schooling at home.
There’s even a sale section with extra discounts.
Even better, besides tons of new books, you can keep supporting your school and teachers while you shop, so there will be more new books for them when schools starts back up.
