“The Library Dragon” is a great book to read to your students to introduce library expectations.
I also made posters with what I expect of the students and hang them in the library. I have shared these in the past but I just updated them for you. There are 3 different versions: patterns, color with illustrations, and black/white with illustrations.
These posters are free in my store. You can click on any of the images to download. If you download these, please leave me some feedback.
Another thing that I always try to do is have my students practice putting books back where they go. At the beginning of the year, I pull some books out and some book boxes. As a class, we look at the books and decide which box they belong in. I have most of my book boxes numbered and with numbers on the books but you’d be surprised how some students never see this until you point it out.
I have an inspiration board for my classroom library on Pinterest. There are some amazing libraries out there that I would love in my classroom.
My next post is M is for Morning Routines.
