First Days of School in a New-To-You Library - Mrs. ReaderPants

As we approach Winter Break, I realized I haven't written many blog articles lately. I moved to a new city and started in a new-to-me library this year. I've been too busy to do much blog writing beyond my infamous New Releases posts and a couple of random book reviews. I'm about 10 book reviews behind, and they may never get written at this point. It's been an exhausting few months, but Winter Break looms large and lovely on the horizon...only one more week to go!

Adopt-a-Shelf Program Lets Students Create Book Displays

The Adopt-a-Shelf program at a Georgia middle school gives students a chance to put their creativity on display while offering book recommendations to their peers. This interview with school librarian Liana Etling offers inspiration and ideas straight from student’s shelves.

24 Library Activities For Middle School: Scavenger Hunts, Research Projects, Games, And Trivia - Teaching Expertise

Getting tweens into the library to do library activities and explore books takes some creative thinking. Activities that are interactive, fun, challenging, and hands-on are the best way to get started. We need curiosity and mystery in library activities that will keep them on the edge of their seats for more.

I know elementary librarians whose library programs thrive on the Specials Rotation. I am unfortunately not one of them. I was on the rotation only in my fifth year in the library, and it was enough to make me apply at the middle school for the next school year. Here's why it went so bad for me... #elementarylibrarians #specialsrotation #schoollibraries #librariantruths School Library Themes, School Library Organization, Library Lesson Plans Elementary, School Library Activities, Elementary School Lesson Plans, Library Lessons Elementary, School Library Lessons, Library Orientation, Elementary Librarian

Middle School Reading Incentive Idea: State Reading Lists and Celebrate Reading Day - Mrs. ReaderPants

Today, I am going to share what we did for the Lone Star Celebration, as well as some ideas I haven't tried yet. These ideas could be adapted to any reading list. This reading incentive plan is very generic and can be adapted to any state, district, or school reading list. It will work for any age of readers as well, provided you want to put together a "Celebration Day" at the end of the school year.
