And best of all, each month the flyers include a new selection of titles that help support what you’re teaching in the classroom!
+ How Reading Club Works
- Scholastic Reading Club Canada has served schools and families since 1957 by providing affordable, just-right books for kids that are carefully selected by teachers and reading experts. Reading Club supports teachers with FREE Books and resources for the classroom, while helping children discover the pleasure and power of reading each month through choosing and owning their own books.
- Teachers can sign up for Reading Club by selecting Create an Account on the Reading Club Homepage. Teachers can also register with Reading Club and create an account by contacting Customer Service.
- Teachers can then set up online ordering for their classroom. Each month Scholastic sends registered teachers flyers filled with books just right for the grades they teach to send home with students.
- Teachers set a due date for ordering each month and give their students a flyer from each catalogue to take home.
- Parents can submit their child’s Reading Club order and payment through Reading Club Online (if the teacher is opted-in to participate in Student Online Ordering) or by returning the paper order forms along with a cheque made out to “Scholastic Canada” to the teacher.
- Teachers submit a combined class order to Scholastic Reading Club online, by mail, fax, or phone.
- Book orders are sent directly to the classroom.
- With each class order, teachers can earn Bonus Bank Rewards and other rewards that can be used for FREE Books and other classroom resources.
How It Works
+Why Parents Place Reading Club Orders Through a Teacher
Scholastic Reading Club has a unique model. Because we negotiate with other publishers to distribute their books, we’re able to produce more affordable products that are only available for the school market. That means all orders have to be placed through the teacher and delivered directly to the classroom.
+Can Homeschools Use Reading Club?
- Reading Club accounts can be set up for homeschools. Please send a signed letter of verification stating that you are homeschooling your child(ren). Please remember to include the number of children and their ages.
Daycares would need to provide their contact information, physical address and a copy of their license.
Please send letters and documentation to:
Customer Service Database Administrator
Scholastic Canada Ltd.
175 Hillmount Road
Or send us an email or fax:
Fax: 1-800-387-4944 Toll-free
School market restrictions apply to many of the books we offer. This means that we cannot accept orders from home addresses except from a legal home school or licensed day care (which qualify as a school market).
- Reading Club accounts can be set up for homeschools. Please send a signed letter of verification stating that you are homeschooling your child(ren). Please remember to include the number of children and their ages.
Once you've read How Reading Club Works, follow these steps to get started:
1. Teachers can sign up for Reading Club by clicking Create an Account on the Reading Club homepage
2. Request catalogues based on your grade taught
3. Set your order due date
4. Send paper flyers home along with a printable letter that can be found on your Teacher's Desk
5. Submit orders you receive and earn Bonus Bank Rewards
+How can I make ordering easier?
- Write the due date for students on their order forms, and post the date in the classroom. Give students a reminder a few days prior to the due date.
- Enlist the help of a parent volunteer to organize and send in the orders. Have your parent helper set up a phone tree to remind everyone to get his or her orders in on time!
- Get your students involved! Kids love to help hand out the flyers, collect orders and pass out the books. (You'll want to handle the money, of course.)
- The hardest part is keeping track of taxes and handling the loose change. Encourage parents to use Reading Club Online to submit their orders directly to you. The taxes are calculated automatically and there's no cash or cheques to handle!
Here are some terrific tips for making ordering easier:

When you log in to your account, you can access the orders parents have placed online in your cart or on your Teacher's Desk and add any paper orders you received in class and any personal items you want before checking out all together.

3. On your Teacher's Desk
+How can I edit a Student Online Order?
Student Online Orders cannot be edited. If you need to make a change to a Student Online Order, you must delete the order (the parent will be notified that you have deleted it and their credit card will not be charged) then ask the parent to place a new order.

+Why are there two different websites to order from?
- Items offered on the Reading Club flyers and in the Classroom Reward Catalogue are available through Scholastic Reading Club Online and are subject to school market rights. We purchase rights from other publishers to publish their books so we can produce affordable products that are only available for distribution in the school market. All orders are placed through the teacher and are delivered directly to the classroom. To order from this site, you must have a Reading Club account.
- The Classroom Essentials and Les indispensables du prof catalogues are available through our Scholastic Teacher Store website and is available to a wider audience, allowing us to offer an online shopping option for customers who may not have a Reading Club account. This site offers products for teachers and educators. Students cannot order from this site.
+Ordering from the Classroom Essentials Catalogue and Les indispensables du prof?
- To place an order from either the Classroom Essentials and Les indispensables du prof catalogue, please visit our Teacher Store Online or call customer service at 1-800-268-3860 (English) or 1-800-625-8583 (French).
+Benefits and Tips for Placing Orders by Student Name
- Teachers can now enter student orders with student names attached, making book distribution faster and easier! Once you are signed in to your Reading Club account, simply select Enter Orders, then choose Student Flyer Orders.
- Tips for entering student names
- When you are placing Student Flyer Orders online, keep in mind that the way you enter the name will be printed on your packing slip as well as any credit or backorder notes for the student. You can use nicknames if one or more students share the same first name, use last initials, or nickname.
- One example of how this may be useful: A pre-kindergarten teacher who has a morning and an afternoon group, might choose to enter "PM" prior to each student name in her afternoon group. "PM Tommy"
- You can enter names or notes up to 19 characters in length (including spaces.)
- Enter student name once and it's saved for the entire school year. When entering Student Flyer Orders online, the first time a teacher types in a student's name it is stored on the name drop-down menu and will be saved for the rest of the school year. So each time you place a new order, when you select the student name field, the drop down menu will appear with all student names—simply select the name of the student you want to place an order for.
- Enter student name one-time only when ordering multiple items
- When you enter or select a student name from the drop down menu, it will remain in the student name field until you enter another name or leave the page. So enter or select a student name once, and then enter and add all the item numbers for the products they have ordered.
- Receive a packing slip organized by student name with your order
- When you enter orders using the Student Flyer Orders tab, and include student names with each order, the packing slip you receive in your book box will be organized by student name, making book distribution faster and easier!
- Each student order is organized in a perforated grid, making it easy for you to tear out each student order to distribute with the books. Plus, there is a thank you to parents on the back of each tear away receipt.
+Different Ways to Enter Your Order Online

2. Then enter each paper order form you’ve received from your students. Type in the student's name, enter the item number, and select to have the item automatically saved to your cart.
- Each student name you enter will remain active until you enter another name. So if a student orders multiple items, you only need to enter his or her name once.
- Simply select the name field to see a list of all the student names you’ve entered during the school year—this makes it quick and easy for you to select a name from the list.
- All student names you enter are saved for the school year and can be found and edited in your Class List on your Teacher’s Desk page.
3. If a student has a coupon to redeem: Enter the student name, then select the coupon link under the name field to enter the coupon code. Search for the student’s requested selection by item number, title, keyword, or grade level. Then confirm the selection and the title will be added to the student’s order.

- Remind students to bring in their order forms!
- Use the handy reproducible parent letters in your online Teacher's Desk to send letters or e-mails home explaining the benefits of Reading Club

+ The Flyers You'll Receive and How to Change Them
The Flyers You’ll Receive
Each month (September to June), if you are registered with Scholastic Reading Club and have placed at least one order this school year, you will receive the appropriate grade-based flyers, based on the information in your account profile. The combination of these flyers will provide a wide range of reading levels to accommodate every student in your class. Plus all current flyers are available online, along with a much wider selection of products, including special online-only collections.
How to Change the Flyers You Receive
Some reasons you may want to change the flyers you receive:
- You are not receiving flyers for all the grades you teach.
- You wish to receive flyers for grades other than the ones you teach.
- You are not receiving enough flyers for every student in your classroom or are receiving too many.
To change the flyers you receive, you'll need to update your Reading Club account profile. The Role information you share with us in this profile tells us which grade flyers to send you and how many you will need for all your students.
1. Select My Account then Profile in the header of any Reading Club ordering page.
2. Then choose Edit next to Role to update the grade(s) you teach and the number of students you need flyers for.
Note: Flyers are sent automatically to Reading Club customers. If you’ve placed a Reading Club order, updating your account profile will get you on track to receive the flyers you need. However, it can take up to three months once your profile information is updated for you to start automatically receiving the flyers by mail. In the interim, you can submit a request for the flyers you need through Customer Service.
If you’d like to stop receiving Reading Club flyers by mail, please contact Customer Service.
+Download Flyers from Reading Club Online

Online Alerts to Help You Submit Orders Before Flyer Expires
It’s possible that a flyer could expire between the time a teacher adds an item to his or her shopping cart and the time the teacher submits that order as a part of a class order. Since items ordered from expired flyers cannot be delivered, we encourage teachers to be aware of the flyer expiration dates to avoid disappointing students and their parents.
You will be notified via email if there are any items in your cart that are close to expiring.
Submit your class order prior to the expiration date so that all orders can be fulfilled.
+When You Can Expect Your Reading Club Flyers to Arrive
If you are an active Reading Club customer, you will automatically receive the appropriate flyer(s) for the grade(s) you have indicated in your account profile. Flyers are sent every month, September through June.

Teachers can submit student orders by name and item number so that when the book box arrives, the packing slip will be organized by student name.
TIP: Watch this short video with step-by-step instructions for submitting student flyer orders and coupons online.
1. From your Reading Club home page (or top navigation bar) select Enter Orders, then Student Flyer Orders.
2. After you’ve entered a student’s order using his or her name (or initials or alias) and item number(s), click Apply a coupon for this student, which appears just below the name.

Rewards are calendar- and event-based. That means rewards are based on the total of all items from all active flyers submitted together during one order session, and are determined by the month in which the order is placed.
Since the larger your total classroom order is the more you’ll benefit, we recommend that you submit one combined classroom order each month.
These opportunities to earn extra Bonus Bank Rewards and other rewards vary from month to month and they do expire, so be sure to check the current flyers or your Reading Club home page for details.

+ Ways to Pay for Reading Club Online Orders
Reading Club offers several ways for teachers to pay for classroom orders. Find the way that works best for you.
- Credit Card (VISA, MASTERCARD or AMERICAN EXPRESS)
- Combination of Cheques and Credit Card
If you receive Student Online Orders from parents through Reading Club Online, they are paid for by parents using a credit card, and the payment is sent directly to Scholastic. (However teachers still need to submit all Student Online Orders as part of their classroom order.)
Please do not send cash.
+If There Is an Outstanding Balance on Your Account
If there is an outstanding balance on your Reading Club account, there are two ways you will be notified by Scholastic.
1. You can select My Account, then Billing and Payment to find this information which will include:
- The total amount due and the date as of which it was due.
- A link to see all of your transactions.
- A link to make payment online, the address if you are mailing a check, and the phone number and hours if you choose to pay by phone. 2. You may also be alerted by phone, email or letter.
+Using a Combination of Cards and Cheques
If you are placing a Reading Club order online, and will be paying using a combination of a credit card and cheques, please follow these instructions below:
1. During checkout, on the Payments page, select Payment Method then Combination of Credit Card and Cheques.
2. Choose Select a Card and then the credit card you will be using, or add a new card.
3. Enter the amount to be paid by credit card. (Simply add up the amount you will be paying by cheque and subtract it from your total order. The remaining balance is the amount to be paid with your card.)
4. Mail in the parent cheques to complete the payment.
Parents do not pay any shipping fees for Reading Club orders. Teachers may incur a small shipping fee if a minimum class order of $25 is not reached. However, this fee is waived if the order includes a Student Online Order.
Shipping is FREE on all orders of $25* or more. In order to keep our books affordable for students, there is a $5.00 shipping charge (plus applicable taxes) for orders below this minimum that do not include a Student Online Order.
+How to Get FREE Shipping
Shipping is FREE on orders of $25 or more, otherwise, there is a shipping fee of $5.00.
Shipping can also be paid for by Bonus Bank Rewards. Submit your class order once per month to avoid multiple small orders, or consider adding an extra item to your order to reach the $25 minimum.
+Problem Solving: When Items Are Missing or Unavailable
When Items Become Unavailable
From time to time, we may run out of stock on an item or it becomes unavailable.
If an item is no longer available, it will be listed as such online and cannot be added to your cart or ordered.
If an item is temporarily out of stock, teachers will be made aware of this on their packing slip stating that it will ship separately when it becomes available.
As an apology for the student, you'll be sent a consolation coupon for a FREE book worth up to $6 to be used by the parent and student toward a future Reading Club purchase. A full credit for the cost of the item will be issued.
When an Item Is Missing from Your Order
First check your book box for the packing list that came with the order. If the missing item is temporarily unavailable (on back order) it will be stated on the packing list and the item will be sent to you as soon as it is available.
If an item is missing from your order and is labeled “on back order” on the packing list, we will include a consolation coupon for a FREE book worth up to $6 to be given to the student(s) who ordered those items as an apology for the delay.
+Reviewing Orders in Your Cart Before Submitting
To review the details of orders still in your cart, but not yet submitted, select the shopping cart in the header of any online ordering page. This will bring you to your Review Cart page, where you can see all the orders you’ve entered, as well as any orders received from parents online.
+Order History and Status
Select My Account at the header of the homepage, then Order History from the menu. For all orders, choose View Details to access:
- Order number
- Total dollar amount of the order

+When Will My Order Arrive?
Your order will arrive in 7 to 10 business days after it is submitted.
+How to Receive a Packing List Organized by Student Name
You no longer have to keep the paper order forms to know which student ordered what item when the book box arrives!
When you submit student paper orders online through Student Flyer Orders, the packing list you receive will be organized by student names.
When you receive the packing list, each student’s order is organized in a perforated grid, making it easy for you to tear out and distribute with the books.
+ How to Read the Packing List
The packing list that comes in the book box with your Reading Club orders contains a lot of useful information. We want to make sure you can benefit from it fully, so we’ve created a Guide to Understanding Your Reading Club Packing List.
If you have questions about your packing list or your order, contact Customer Service.
+Manage/Update Your Reading Club Account
Find Your Account Information
To find your Reading Club account information, sign in to your account and select My Account, then Profile in the top-right corner of any Reading Club ordering page. On your Reading Club account page, select Edit next to the information you’d like to update.
Updating Your Teaching Role/Grade Information (Which Determines the Flyers You Receive)

If you are changing schools, go to your Profile and select Edit beside your school information or contact Customer Service to update your school information.
Taking a Leave?
If you are taking parental leave, a leave of absence, or will be away from school for an extended period of time, please update your Profile under Planned Leave or contact Customer Service at 1-800-268-3860 or email email@example.com to let us know.

Why It’s Necessary to Update Your Account Profile Each Year
It’s important that all returning teachers review and update their profiles to confirm or edit the grade(s) they teach and number of students they have. This ensures that we can send all active customers the correct flyers with enough student flyers/order forms each month. You will only be asked to review and update, or confirm, your profile once at the beginning of each school year.
If You're Experiencing Difficulty Updating Your Account Profile
Please contact Customer Service.

Why You Will No Longer Have an Account

+Minimizing our carbon footprint
We are doing a number of different things to ensure our offers are environmentally responsible and have the smallest carbon footprint possible.
- We print our promotions on FSC-certified papers.
- We print in Canada and source our paper from a mill nearby, minimizing the shipping involved in getting paper to the printer, and promotions to schools.
- We wrap our kits in oxo-biodegradable plastic that breaks down over time.
- We continue to reduce our mailings to limit the paper and shipping necessary, minimizing our use of resources like wood and fossil fuels.
+Scholastic Reading Club paper and printing
- We source the paper for our student flyers from an FSC-certified mill in Ontario. This lets us ensure that sources meet the standards for responsibly managed forests.
+The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
- The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit organization that supports environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests. In order to certify a paper product the council monitors the paper-making and printing processes, from the forests to the warehouse, to ensure that they are environmentally responsible. The FSC ensures that the forests where our paper pulp comes from are well managed and sustainable, and that the printers are as energy efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. When a paper product has an FSC logo on it, like our promotions, it means that it has met the FSC criteria for environmentally responsible production choices.
+What parts of the Reading Club package can be recycled?
- Once teachers, parents and children have had an opportunity to make their selections from the monthly Reading Club offer, the flyers can be placed in your regular recycling bin. The plastic straps and shrink wrap that hold the Reading Club together when they arrive in the mail are also recyclable.
+Shrink wrap and plastic bags
- Our bags and shrink wrap are made of oxo-biodegradable plastic, which means that they will break down over time. Oxo-biodegradation is a two-step process in which the plastic first starts to break down under exposure to oxygen and heat. The smaller molecules are then further broken into carbon dioxide, water and biomass through reaction with naturally occurring microorganisms. Oxo-biodegradable plastics are not suitable for compost, but they can be recycled.
+Can parents order online during the summer?
Parents are not be able to order online during the summer, while there are no student flyers. But teachers can continue to order during the summer months from the Classroom Reward Catalogue, the Spring Classroom Reward Catalogue, and the Back to School flyer.
+What will happen to the parents connected to my account when the school year ends?
At the end of every school year any parent accounts connected with your Teacher Profile will be removed. This helps in the transition from one school year to the next, with new parents finding and connecting with you.
+How do I confirm my participation in Parent Online Ordering for next year?
The first time you log in after we reset our system in July for the new school year, we will prompt you to confirm your participation in Student Online Ordering so that students’ families can find you for the upcoming school year.
+When can new parents find and connect to my account for the new school year?
Parents will be able to log in again on August 1st and connect to their teacher for the new school year.
+I run a daycare/homeschool. Can I keep my parent connections for next year?
Unfortunately, daycares and homeschools are not be able to keep their parent connections for next year. Parents will have to re-connect with you after August 1st for the new school year.
