50 Books for 50 Bucks!

I have said it before, and I'll say it again...I spend too much money on books for my classroom! After 7 years of teaching, I have been given books by students, family, friends, bought them on eBay to start my collection, got suckered by Scholastic's free $10 of books once you spend $20 and Amazon's "books we suggest," bought some using my teacher's discount at Barnes and Noble, drooled over books on Pinterest, and even gotten some from Freecycle.... and yet, I still had to buy more!
Scholastic has this great deal going on where they offer 50 books for $50! They normally retail for around $320. I had to buy both sets - for K-2 and 3-5. I figure that I'm tutoring anywhere from 6-8 kids a week, so it more than paid for it. I'll also be spending the next few months creating units for them since I haven't had time to create or add anything to my Teachers Pay Teachers account in months! Hope you take advantage of this offer before it ends on February 24! :)


  1. I love these deals from Scholastic. And how can anyone have too many books!

  3. Hi there,
    I'm your newest blogger, I just found you. I was born in New Jersey but moved to Los Angeles, CA when I was about 14 months old so I don't remember it much. I have been back and it is so beautiful! I'm a brand new blogger come visit me. I teach first grade! A long time ago I did this deal with scholastic - like 13 years ago - they even did it way back then. LOL Have a great week.
