How Reading Club Works

Getting Started is as Easy as 1-2-3

  1. It starts with the flyer. Start receiving Reading Club catalogs after you place your first order. All the flyers you need—plus special offers just right for your class—will be sent to you at your school address. Hand the flyers out in class for your students to take home and pick the books they really want to read!

  2. Ordering online is easy–and fast! Collect the order forms with payment from students, and enter student orders online using each student’s name and item number(s). No need to sort student flyers. And all the math is done for you! You can also approve any orders from parents submitted online to you. Every order earns Bonus Points toward FREE Books, supplies, and more for your classroom!

  3. The books are delivered straight to your classroom. Excitement arrives with the Reading Club book box. All items are organized by student name on the packing slip, which makes distribution of books so easy. You may show students the FREE Books you received for the classroom library and talk about the books that just arrived–it’s a great way to create a reading event!

Making the Most of Reading Club

How to Maximize Your Bonus Points
  • Check out the outer teacher pages of the Reading Club catalogs to see that month’s Bonus Point promotions.
  • Tell students about the FREE gifts they’ll receive if they place an order.
  • Make sure parents understand that every order they place from Scholastic Reading Club earns FREE Books and teaching resources that will directly benefit their children.

Tips on Keeping Parents Engaged

  • Use the handy templates in your online Teacher Dashboard to send letters and e-mails home explaining the benefits of Reading Club.
  • At Back-to-School Night and parent-teacher conferences, share Reading Club flyers with parents. You can discuss how the books are matched to kids’ reading levels and interests and how every purchase helps earn FREE Books for your classroom library.
  • Encourage parents to order online for a wider selection of grade-specific books–this way you don’t have to handle any cash!
  • Feel free to ask for help! Ask for parent volunteers to manage Scholastic Reading Club in your classroom, or partner with another teacher and take turns.

Tips to Keep Students Excited About Reading

  • Distribute Reading Club flyers at the end of the day so they’re top of mind when kids get home. You can even hand them out with homework assignments so they don’t get lost in those backpacks!
  • Take a few minutes in the afternoon to talk about some of the books in the flyer and point out your personal recommendations.
  • Hand out more than one flyer to give your students a bigger selection of books to choose from.
  • Personalize your students’ flyers with recommendations just for them.
  • Use your Bonus Points for something the whole class can enjoy, and make sure students understand that their reading helped make it happen!
  • Remind students they’ll get a free gift if they order. It could be a sticker set, poster, bookmark, or key chain!

How to Encourage Parents to Order Online

Online ordering means parents don’t have to fill out the paper form, and you don’t have to handle any cash. It’s a win-win! Here’s how it works:

  • Your one-time Class Activation Code is the key to allowing parents to order online. You’ll get the code in an e-mail after creating a Reading Club account. You can also find it on your home page when you sign in.
  • Simply write the code on the flyers before you hand them out to students or include it in a letter to parents. When parents place their first online order, they’ll need to enter the code to earn Bonus Points for your classroom.
  • You’ll receive an e-mail whenever a parent enters an online order. When all of the parent orders are entered by the deadline you’ve set, submit them all together in one combined class order. This way you can earn even bigger Bonus Point rewards!

Reading Club Coordinators Can Lend a Hand

Want help placing orders every month? Your school may have a Reading Club Coordinator (RCC) who has volunteered to help teachers manage their orders. Just look for a classroom door displaying the RCC banner!
