Last Year On This Date | Day 5 of Fall Back Into Blogging

***Today is Day 5 of the SITS Girls Fall Back Into Blogging.  Our prompt for today was to re-post something that we posted last year on today's date.  I didn't post last year on the 28th so I went for the 27th.***
Do you get those little Scholastic Book Club order forms from your child's school?  We do.  They are always at the front of the school.  I have looked at them before but never ordered.  I am not even sure why I haven't ordered.  The prices are great.  Each grade level has a $1 book selection and there are about 4 different levels that we can order from.  Starting in October, we can order online and the school gets more points and free books.  Plus - parents and grandparents can order books for the children even if they don't live close by.
Taft's class has themes each week and for two weeks in September they are studying apples, autumn, and trees.  The Biggest Apple Ever was one of the $1 books so we got two.  One for Taft and one for his class.  We did the same with the Five Little Pumpkins.  I told him that we were getting some for his class and for him.  He seemed excited.
When I got to the school yesterday, the book orders where in their cubbies.  I picked up the books and he only had three.  Ms. Erin told me that he was so excited and wanted to give her the books.  He said, "Ms. Erin, these books for you."  She said that the class told him thank you and she had already read them both to the kids.  And Taft and I read Piggies in the Pumpkin Patch in bed last night.
I plan on doing the same this month with the book order.  I think that it teaches Taft how nice it is to share so that his friends can enjoy books that he likes also.  It also helps to built the library for his class for years to come.  He is making his mark on the world.


  1. Stopping by from SITS fall project to say hello!

  2. I LOVED Scholastic book club day at school. I was going to write about that for the first day of our Fall back into blogging! I swear there was nothing as exciting as the day that box arrived and the teacher handed us our books!

    What a sweet idea and an opportunity to teach giving by buying a book for the classrooms as well!

  3. I love Scholastic! I have faithfully bought from the pamphlets almost every month. And yes, you are quite right, the deals they often have are fantastic.

    Stopping in from the SITS sharefest.

  4. I love the scholastic books, especially the ones for fall. The illustrations on most of them are colorful and awesome. When I use to teach preschool, my class always looked forward to the scholastic book fair. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  5. Yes to Scholastic and I totally agree with Toia about the illustrations!! Teaching your son to read *and* about giving - has anyone told you lately you are an AWESOME mom!!!?!!! xoxoxo cindy

  6. My boys love those Scholastic order catalogs. Often those $1 books are cute, and what an awesome deal too! I stopped by to thank you for joining in on the Boo game and to visit your blog.
