Our amazing LMC director was able to get my students in for library orientation a week early, and we are all excited about it! That being said, I had to rearrange some plans in order to fit in my usual day before the library lesson. When I was originally taking classes to become an LMS (before I switched to technology) I had to create a lesson about using reference resources in the LMC. After reading Igniting A Passion for Reading by Steven Layne three years ago, I was excited to try out some of his ideas in my own classroom!
Tomorrow we will be filling out an interest inventory, a reading self-assessment, and then explaining what the Books to Consider sheet is for. When we go to the library on Tuesday, students will be armed with a list of genres to consider, as well as some topics to look for if they are stuck. They can also add books to their "wishlist" if something isn't available, or they have too many to choose from. Our students are limited to three books at a time.
Reading ignites a passion within me. -Mrs. White
I read to discover new worlds. -Mrs. White
These will go up on the black paper around the "book"
I'm excited to have these up for open house on Thursday!
Finally, for reaching over 100 likes on my Facebook page (and I am so humbled, wow!) I am running another giveaway for a monogram water bottle.
