Free Scholastic Book Order Graphics for Parent Communication

My classroom parents always want advice on where they can buy SUPER easy-to-read books for their kindergarten students. They try to shop at their local book store, but you know how hard it can be to find Level A, B or C books at the store. That's why I always encourage classroom parents to purchase books from Scholastic. Over 90% of my own classroom library has been stocked with books from the Book Order. It's a great bargain and the best source of texts for emergent readers.

The problem is, not every book in the Kindergarten flyer is intended for children to read independently. Many of the titles are picture books that are of interest to kindergarten students, but are intended for parents and teachers to read aloud to young children.

Scholastic posts book level information in many of their book descriptions, but the print is tiny and easy for parents to overlook. I find that parents need a little guidance to help them purchase the most effective books for their children's reading level so I created some simple graphics for communicating with parents about the book order.

You can share the image above with parents, or hop over to the Kinder Craze blog and grab two separate images for catalog and online ordering information.

Just save the graphics to your computer and upload them to your class webpage or add them to your printed classroom newsletter. It will make your parents happy (and hopefully bring in a few extra Scholastic bonus points for YOU!)
