What exactly are Bonus Points?
Think of them as Reading Club currency. Every single time you place an order for your classroom, that order earns you Bonus Points that you can spend on things you need: books, curriculum guides, Common Core kits, classroom resources—even iPads.
How do I earn more Bonus Points?
Throughout the year, there are endless opportunities to earn Extra Bonus Points. Keep an eye on the teacher pages of your monthly catalogs for special Bonus Point promotions. The best way to earn Bonus Points is by engaging parents and getting your students excited about the latest books. Every dollar equals more points.

There is no question about it: Parents make all the difference.
The secret to growing your classroom Reading Club isn't a secret at all: when parents are engaged and in the loop, everything is easier. We've redoubled our efforts this year to help teachers get parents involved. There are so many tools in the Teacher Dashboard to help reach out to parents, but there are some good old-fashioned tricks as well.
Use the tools
Your Teacher Dashboard has parent letters, e-mail templates, and order reminders to help you connect. Download your Parent Introduction letters in seven different languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Korean, Russian and Chinese.
Parents want to know what you think is right for their child. Whether it's on the flyer or online, let them know.
Make it count
Use contests and the Book of the Month to get everyone excited and involved and earn Bonus Points.
