Homeschoolers ordering from Scholastic Book Clubs

Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue SeaThis is from my sister Barbara Buxton: Go to http://catalog.scholastic.com/acr/order and click on Teachers, new to Scholastic, Get Started and fill out the form. There is a place to say you are a homeschool teacher. It was easy and you get points when you buy and then you can cash them in for free books too. I would order for other homeschool families too but you can do it just for your family.

catalog.scholastic.comScholastic Book Clubs offers monthly catalogs just right for every student’s grade, reading level, and interests. Get the best titles at discount prices throughout the school year!

Educational First Steps “Literacy Day” at the The Dallas Zoo. We had such a great time sharing the importance of literacy to parents and children as we gave away books to every child. Special thanks to Gustavo E Monsante, who took wonderful photos of the whole event!
