TEACHERS, PLEASE SEND COMPLETED LIBRARY BOOKS DOWN ON THE MORNING YOUR LIBRARY TIME IF YOU HAVE MORNING CLASS. IF YOU HAVE AFTERNOON CLASS, BRING THE CRATE OF BOOKS ON YOUR WAY TO LUNCH PLEASE. THIS WILL ALLOW US TO CLEAR YOUR STUDENTS RECORDS SO THEY CAN CHECK OUT MORE BOOKS.
There are crates outside the library. If one has not been delivered to your classroom on your library day, please send a student to retrieve a crate rather than have them carry a heavy stack of books!
Students should always bring books that they have checked out even if they are not finished with them. Many times the books need to be rechecked so overdue notices do not have to be sent home.They will use shelf markers when they remove a book from the shelf. The shelf markers will include the student photo, barcode and reading level of the student, as well as the types of books teachers want them to have (fiction, nonfiction, choice, etc.)
Kindergarten students will choose a book to take to the classroom but will not take them home.
First Grade students will check out ONE book that can go home. After the first five weeks they will be allowed TWO books.
Second Graders will check out THREE books and may take one book home at a time.
Third and Fourth Grade Students will be allowed to check THREE books. They should only take one library book home at a time and leave the other at school for silent reading.
If a book is more than two weeks overdue the student will check out one less book. Again, students should not take more than one library book home at a time. If they take all of them home and forget to bring them back, they will not be able to get new books when the class comes to the library.
Please schedule research times with Mrs. Lucier, Hassell or Wilkerson using the Library Schedule on Google Docs. You will need to accompany your class to help with the research and monitor to keep them on task. Mrs. Lucier or Mrs. Hassell will share information-seeking strategies accessing those resource. Mrs. Wilkerson will assist the classroom teacher in STAR or AR testing in the lab, but the teacher should be present.
