Elementary Library Lessons

LibrarianArika's school libraryBeing a teacher-librarian is more than reading a book.  Below you will find links to many lessons I’ve taught in the elementary library, but in a new format. Grouping them by year makes it more streamlined and easier to navigate. You can also find all lessons by hovering over ‘Elementary Library Lessons’ on the bar above to see tabs for each school year. I hope this helps! Happy teaching!

      Hi! We had a local artist create paintings for our building when we were built 10 years ago. I asked for this sign (and other genre signs) to be painted for the library – the sky was the limit regarding design, and I love what she created. Later, when the library needed other signs, a parent volunteered to paint them in a similar style. Good luck!

    Hi. I just found your site and had a question. I noticed that you have a paper for each grade like an outline. Do you make those for every class and grade? I desperately need to be more organized and I love them. Just wondering what the pattern is or if there is one.

      Hi! First, my apologies for taking so long to respond. No excuses, just overly busy life.
      I do use a page for each class: a PPT slide the last 2 years, a whiteboard the previous 8 years. I didn’t have a template but made blank PPT slides and included graphics/text.
      I’ll eventually post a slide with all my favorite graphics, as I’m only starting to put that together (I’ve never had one slide with all my favorite icons, so it’s taking longer than I thought).
      I, too, wanted to be more organized. I mostly wanted to remember what I was teaching to the classes during the week, as seeing various grades on different days of the week was wrecking havoc on my memory. Bonus: it looks really organized when admin drops in. 🙂 Cheers, arika

      Hi Martha! No, I don’t have any formal lessons on community helpers. Maybe a fiction/nonfiction comparison? Books on police / fire / sanitation in both styles of writing and a Venn Diagram to compare & contrast?
