Students have adjusted well to the routine and additional responsibilities they have as students this year in the library. All of the grades are assisting in “Checking In” and “Checking Out” their own individual library books, while the upper grades are actually taking full responsibility.
After about 15 min. of entering the library, students have many options, but the first task is to “Check In” their book, then they must “Check Out” another during their designated station. So far, it’s working and students are enjoying their participation in the library procedures.
The next step is to get them to PUT THE BOOKS ON THE SHELF, which means I will be the one reading on the couch!
