Every month, each and every K-2 student in my school gets to choose $7 in books from Scholastic Book Clubs. Thanks to an organization called Book Trust, these books are paid for from a local corporate sponsor. $7 per student , every month, across 8 classrooms. This totals over $1,200.00 each month! There is never a month when I am not incredibly grateful and utterly amazed at the generosity of our sponsor.
Each month when that red and white box arrives in our room, there is a buzz that breaks out immediately.
“The book order is here!” “When can we look at our books?!”
The excitement is palpable. It’s like Christmas morning every month. The joy and excitement from each of my students never gets old. They immediately begin to gather with friends, eagerly showing each other their books, giddy with excitement over their collection of treasured new books.
Today was book celebration day. Enjoy this peek into our reading party!
Thank you Scholastic, thank you Book Trust, and thank you Teletec Corporation. The investment you are making in the lives of these young readers will reap dividends beyond these special moments. You are building readers, and the impact runs deep in their hearts and far into their futures.
