Library Media Center Updates for Teachers
Update on Checkout Procedures/BONUS checkout times
Now that we are a few weeks into checkouts...I wanted to update a couple of things:
1) Students in Grades 3-5 will now be able to choose 3 books. Each grade does things a little different, but the idea is that a book can be kept at school and two can be brought home. This will work well when you are working on a topic in your classroom and you want them to choose at least one specific book, then they can still make two other choices if they want.
2) Students in Grades K-2 will still get 2 books. 2nd graders will slowly be allowed to check 1 book from anywhere, and 1 from the "Everybody" section. I'm working on a letter to send home to parents for those 2nd graders who are reading at higher levels and are choosing more advanced books. It's tricky because although they can read at higher levels, the content in the books might not appropriate for their age. Hopefully together we can determine what will be a good fit book for that student (reading level and content).
3) Please continue to stay with your class during their checkout time. Not only are there times when Becky is not available to be in here, but you are a tremendous resource for them during the selection process. Sitting and reading with the kids or looking through the shelves with them is awesome! I have had many of you make a positive impact on your students during checkout already and it is so cool to see! If you need to run to the restroom or need a couple minutes to get something ready in the classroom, that's totally fine. As we settle into the year a bit more, it will be your call if you'd like to stay, but I'm hoping that you enjoy checkout time with your class and want to be there!
New Picture Book
Kids will love this one as much as the first! I have 3 copies!!
New Interactive Books!
This is one of two interactive books we currently have, but I will be getting more! They are great nonfiction resources! *I have been working with tech to get you all access to the eBooks...I will demo how to do this at our next staff meeting!
Library Book Carts!
We only have 8 of these so we have to share them around the school. We will do our best to get them to your room the day before your checkout, but if you need one, just send a student down. We really appreciate having your books back the day before your checkout! Thank you!
