I can't tell you how many scholastic book orders I receive on a weekly basis! Instead of recycling them, I try and find ways that students can use them.
Right now, third grade students have been reviewing how author's can write stories to entertain or to inform readers. Students use the Scholastic Book Orders and cut pictures out of book titles that either were written to entertain or to inform. Then they have to explain why the books are either entertaining or informing.
