I have accumulated several points with Scholastic and I want to use them wisely. What types of things do you get with your points? Any "must-haves"??

I use them to buy more books for my classroom library or professional resource books.

I buy lots of books that I can't afford to buy on my own. I've bought several series like The Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I also buy things out of the teacher bonus catalog so that I don't have to spend my own money. For example, I just bought a math game.

I mostly buy books for the classroom or for gifts for my students. There was one time that I ordered a gateway computer for my son and he never appreciated it. He just complained that it wasn't the most up to date thing available.

Sometimes I get the teacher resource items as well. I have toyed with getting the gift cards for Target or Staples but if you do the math for them or computers or anything like that, the stuff "costs" too much. The best deals are books.

I do want to mention that a friend who retired thought she would still have access to hers after retirement, but they would not mail items to her home and she would not set foot back at school (plus they probably would have given her items to the teacher who replaced her.) I felt bad for her and used my own points to get her what she wanted.

I have over 60,000 bonus points and I really have trouble deciding what to do with them. I would love to order a document camera but using the points to pay would feel like a waste of money and I probably won't teach long enough to make it worth it.

OMG, Nancy! I spend mine almost as fast as they acculumate. I could never get to 60,000 points!

TeachK-6, I buy books, books, books. Nothin' but books. Like Nancy, I comparison shopped a lot of things, and I agree it's a better deal to buy books with your points than to buy things on a "bang for your buck" basis.
