Cashed In All My Scholastic Reading Club Points!

Ok, bare with me… This post is me nerdin’ out on books!🤩

I am super excited for the package that just came! 📚We earned a bunch of Scholastic Points all year and we just cashed them all in! If you homeschool little ones or run a home daycare or preschool  you should totally look into setting up an account with Scholastics.89B043FD-8A4A-488F-8939-01680625CDDA

For our home daycare-preschool and homeschooling our 10 year old, we have been ordering each month from Scholastics Book Club. They are really affordable and work great for our home. The program is exactly the same as the flyers the children bring home from school each month.

I’d prefer my preschool titles to all be hardbound, but I can’t afford that, so their inexpensive soft cover format works well for us(some titles I will pay for hardbound, but not usually). I probably order between $25 and $50 each month, for the last 8 months.📚

The program works by placing an optional monthly order. Each consecutive month you order the more banked free points you earn. You also earn free books each month as well. If I place a $50 order, I might be able to also select $15 of free books, depending on the monthly deals.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to get with our free points until last week when I realized I had just about all the preschool titles that we want that they currently offer.0DA3D45C-1BDB-4126-B21C-29AFAF338DA4

So I started looking through the YA titles and decided to cash it all in on our summer reading! I say “our” but that’s me being quite optimistic. I will definitely read them all myself and possibly my 10 year old son will read a few.

I wish I would have started this book club years ago in my daycare. Occasionally parents will place an order, but for the most part it is me making the $25 minimum order. If your interested this is the link to setting up an account, E4224BB6-8C1B-4383-B147-5DA63ACE2217

If you have read some of these titles, please tell me what should we read first?! Which of these are your favorites? My son has read the first Harry Potter but none of the rest.BBE6B5A2-7909-451D-B4B0-C09340BEE3C4

I had to post a blog about this order, I probably sound like a Scholastic Advertisement! lol But Im just super excited! This shipment has cured my Mother’s Day blues..

Thanks for reading another nerdy post of mine!🤩

      • I hear you. I actually am spending more time writing lately that reading has become something I am doing at work on my half hour lunch. Yet I keep downloading books for my Kindle.

  1. I absolutely LOVE the Harry Potter series and the Heroes of Olympus- I would say, though, it’s best to read the Percy Jackson series then the Heroes of Olympus because the Heroes of Olympus continues the story in the Percy Jackson series 🙂

  2. I miss Scholastic! Our district only participates at the elementary school level. I ordered book after book for 6 years and filled teacher’s libraries at the end of each year. Ender’s game is good (plus there are others in the series that tell the story from a different perspective). Harry Potter is always good but my son got really bored. Rick Riordan is a great author, but it really depends on which mythology you like. I loved the Percy Jackson series (Greek) and The Kane Chronicles (Egyptian), but don’t care too much for Magnus Chase (Norse). My son didn’t like any of them. I don’t know how you feel about horror (vampires), but Cirque du Freak series by Darren Shan is awesome! My son was/is into dystopian fiction by that time, so he liked The Giver and The Leviathan series.

    • Wow! That is awesome! I love hearing everyone’s thoughts on these titles! I will have to add Circue du Freak to my reading list! I love vampire books too, and the Giver is a book in the set I ordered also.
      Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment on our book order! 🙂

      • Whatever you do…don’t watch the movie until after you have read all the Cirque du Freak series…they butchered it. A few more dystopian ones I just remembered is the Uglies series by Westerfeld (not sure about the content though), City of Ember series by DuPrau, Ready Player One by Cline, and The 5th Wave by Yancey. My son didn’t like the rest of the Giver series, Maze Runner, or Hunger Games.

      • No worries there… I rarely watch the movies! But I did just finish Ready Player One, and I’m planning on taking the kids to see it soon. Thanks so much for the tips!!! 💕💕💕

  3. I see some Rick Riordan in there! His Percy Jackson series was really good, I remember reading them when I was younger! I think the Heroes of Olympus series comes after, but you should definitely check those out if your son enjoyed Harry Potter!

      • Give him time, he’ll come round eventually! One day, you’ll get a load of books and he’ll be just as excited as you are!

  4. We love ordering from Scholastic. What a great way to get affordable books. I used to love cashing in my Scholastic points at the end of the year to restock my kindergarten bookshelves. On another note, it looks like you ordered Pax with your points! My son and I just finished reading that one together. We loved it! Happy reading!!
