Want to get involved in an easy way to help donate up to one million (yes, one million!) books to kids in need? Then this year’s ClassroomsCare program is perfect for you and your classroom.
ClassroomsCare is essentially a volunteer and motivational reading program all rolled up into one. That’s right, this year every student will have a personal reading goal of ten books. It’s our hope that this goal will encourage students to read in class and at home, because each child’s ten books will help classrooms across America trigger a one-million-book donation to amazing organizations like Reach Out and Read, Save the Children, and the Pajama Program. Plus, we’re here to help you, too. On the Web site, you’ll find FREE printables and resources to help motivate your students to read to give.
To get your classroom started, make sure to look out for the ClassroomsCare poster and bookmarks that will be included with your first order in September/October. What’s more, when you register online, we’ll send you 250 Bonus Points to help buy books for your students. We’ve also expanded the Web site to include a “Where the Books Go: See How Your Reading Makes a Difference!” page. This page is open to teachers, parents, and students. It will highlight how we work with our charity partners to get books to children who need them most so that students can really see how they are helping kids in need.
