Mrs. Rombach’s Scholastic Reading Club Code: MCPJQ
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss
“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.” – Ray Bradbury
Reading allows us to travel across continents, beyond worlds, and to the deepest part of our hearts and minds. Mrs. Rombach loves books, loves to see students reading books, and loves to buy books for herself, her children, and her classroom. “Books are portable magic,” says author Stephen King. They also don’t run out of batteries, suffer technology breakdowns, or crack when dropped.
Books are a feast for the imagination…a feast that can be gobbled down and then passed on to another hungry reader. Books are undoubtedly one of the cheapest forms of entertainment available, which is why you’re encouraged (by your child’s Language Arts teacher) to buy (and borrow) books. My own parents, who operated on a vault-tight budget, enrolled me in a book-of-the-month club when I was in elementary and middle school. I have been forever hooked on the power of the written word.
Every month, I’ll send home Scholastic Book Club flyers. However, if they end up crumpled in the bottom of your sixth grader’s backpack, you can always come here and search the seemingly endless library of books that Scholastic has to offer. There are $1 books–and plenty of paperbacks priced at $5 or less. The truth is, Costco can’t even rival Scholastic prices (some hardcovers for $8-$10).
To share the joy of reading with all of my students, our classroom joyfully accepts book donations anytime of year. If your family would like to celebrate a birthday–or just your love of reading–by donating a book to our class library, we’ll graciously accept your enduring gift (and have your child sign the label and be the book’s first reader).
