Check out today's tip below.
When we got to the library the librarian told the students about different reading contests they had during the summer. Then she showed them around the library and explained procedures for the library. After she was done I put my students into groups and gave each group a clipboard, paper and pencil. Then I challenged them to find at least 5 books they would be interested in reading this summer. They excitedly searched the library, discovering numerous books to include on their lists. A couple of the librarians also helped students who applied for library cards finish up their library cards, by choosing pins and signing their names on their cards. They were so excited to sign their names. When we got back to the school I photocopied their list of books and and gave a copy to each group member.
Have you taken students to the library?
