PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How to Earn 10,000 Scholastic Bonus Points is a free packet of materials I created to share my best tips and secrets for cashing in on Scholastic's back-to-school bonus point deals. Each year I update this item with the new information based on the current flyers, so be sure you return every August to receive the most current information. Even if what I'm suggesting seems out of reach for your class, give it a try. It worked for me every year that I used these strategies, even in years when I taught in high poverty schools. If you like it and it works for you, please return and rate this freebie. Share your stories with everyone! Good luck! ~ Laura Candler

My partner teacher and I both used this idea this year, and we both got $300!!! We had a competition between our 2 classes to see who could reach the $300 goal first, and managed to both get it on the same day! We are having our "Scholastic Party" tomorrow! The kids are SO excited about books...what better way can you think of to start the year?!? Not to mention that I spent Saturday morning "shopping" online with my 10,000 Scholastic bonus points! Bought close to 200 books for my class! Thanks...I'll be doing this every year from now on!

I work in a poor school district and used this system last year and was shocked that we exceeded our goal by around $50. We were able to add so many great books to our classroom library. I will definitely be attempting to meet the goal again this year even though I will have far few students in my classroom. Cross your fingers and thanks, Laura, for a great resource!
On  August 20, 2012Laura Candler answered:
Thanks for sharing this! People are often amazed at how well this system works when you do it the way it's outlined in the packet! Try teaming up with another teacher to reach the goal and split the points later based on the percent of money that was contributed by each teacher's class.

If you don't get enough parents to Oder, can you order to make up the $300?

I had previously downloaded you free Scholastic 7,000 bonus points and had planned to use that one first thing this Sept. Now I see it is set up for 10,000 points. However, your freebie has Sample stamped across the parent letter and I noticed the freebie 7,000 pt. letter didn't have that stamped across it. Is there a possibility this was a mistake? I'd love to use your letter if possible. Thanks!
On  September 25, 2013Laura Candler answered:
There's something in the packet that tells you where to download the customizable letter. I wish you had read that before marking my rating down. It's free on my website, and this is a free resource that was very time-consuming to put together.

Okay Laura! lol I'm going in! I work in a high poverty area, but I have found that a handful of students will always purchase $3 or $5 worth of books from the club order form. After looking over your materials, I'm going to go for it! I'll let you know how it goes. I have 35 students on my class list right now...$10 each? hmmmmmm we'll see! Wish me luck ;)
On  August 12, 2012Laura Candler answered:
Great attitude! It's worth a try. You might not get all 7000 points, but you'll probably get a lot. You can collaborate with other teachers and put in one huge order. Then call the company to split up the points later. I've done that before.

Product Questions & Answers

On  August 20, 2013Teachers Unleashed (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Laura!
I love having your help every year in earning 10,000 points with Scholastic. This year is no exception. I have a question though. In the letter to send home, did you mean to leave the watermark on the page? I believe in past years, it was not a sample but a usable letter for parents. I may be wrong.

Thanks so much,
Susan

On  August 20, 2013Laura Candler answered:
I meant to leave the watermark on that page because the packet tells you where you can go to get the editable one. The one in the packet is too specific to my class so I'm not sure how many could use it as is. I did not include it as a zip file because so many people complain about zip files. Good luck this year! I would love for you to share this freebie with your followers and tell them about the program!
On  August 11, 2013HipTeacha (TpT Seller) asked:
No question. I just want to say thank you!!! I just ordered a new bookshelf because I ran out of room to store all the books I got from my book orders last year. You may want to warn folks about that side effect! ;)

I hope you found your answer - after I saw your question I spend some time looking for the new info on Scholastic and updating the packet. You can go back to that page and download the revised version now. Thanks!
On  August 19, 2012Shelly Albaugh (TpT Seller) asked:
What a wonderful idea! I have been talking to two other colleagues of mine about this. We would like to try to combine our orders this first year to try and reach this goal. I understand that you can call Scholastic and they will divide the bonus points. Is it possible for parents to order online with three different classes and combine the totals? I just can't wrap my thoughts around how to do that! We all have a different activation code. Other than that question, I am very excited to try this!

That's a good question. No, one of you will have to take on the task and give out that ordering code to all parents who are going to help try to reach this goal. You should send out a letter explaining that you will all be placing your order with Mrs. ________ so that you can try to reach the goal of a $350 order. But tell them that you will split the points after the fact according to the number that each class orders. So if your class order 50% of the books (by cost) and the others each do 25% of the order, your class will end up with 3,500 points they will split the left over amount. You could also say the which ever class takes on the task of handling the orders and money gets 10% of the points right off the top or something like that. It will be a bit of a headache, but it's worth it. Good luck!

Good question. I don't know the answer - the only way you would know is to look at a catalog that goes to Canada if they even sell books there. You can probably call the number for Scholastic to find out if they have the same deal in Canada.
