I LOVE Book Club!

I don't think I have ever blogged about my addiction with Book Club. It was one of my favourite things as a child, Mum always let us buy a book each Book Club - I loved getting the magazines, waiting for my brand new book.... waiting... and then it would arrive. Hmmmm the smell of a new book!

Well my addiction to Book Club has continued as a teacher - I buy presents for friends who have kids, presents for myself and teaching resources. At my Australian Schools, the bonus points go back to the school, but I loved spending those at my US schools too! Come on, admit it, you love Book Club too!

This month I spent $99 and I was so excited! I have wanted a magnetic linear clock to teach time duration for ages and also some magnetic base 10 blocks! Now I have both! I got a couple of books and some stickers too, but this is what I was most excited about! All the girls were crowding around checking out what I had.....


The other great news is today I got wireless internet! Woo Hoo! I am always having problems with my internet running out (I only got 4GB a month on a wireless USB) now I get 200GB! I won't know what to do with myself! This means everything is fast, I can spend as much time on pinterest as I want and download clipart until my heart is content!

LOVE a day of celebrations!

  1. I have a very bad addiction to Book Club! I also have that magnetic base ten set (I bought it last year) and my Grade 1s love using it.

    Haven't seen the clocks, but I do have a giant, magnetic Australian Money set. :)

    1. Hehe, we now sit down in class and spend 10 minutes circling everything we want! Me and the kids! The parents must hate me!

  5. Another Book Club addict here! However I don't do as many orders as I used to. Our school has two Book Fairs during the year, and many parents wait to buy books from that. I am in need of some new books for my classroom, so I may need to do them again!

    I love the time manipulatives! I need one of those number lines!

  6. I am *patiently* waiting for my order to arrive at school - I can hardly contain my excitement!! I only ordered a few books this time but have a very long wish list which seems to get longer and longer with each issue hehe
