FREE Library Lessons for the First Week of School! (K-5)

I know that it is impossible to design lesson plans that will fit everyone’s needs. As media specialists/librarians/library teachers, etc. we all have different schedules and student populations. Some of us are lucky to have lots of technology available to us to use during our classes and others have next to nothing. If you can’t use all of the lessons, I hope you can use some of them.

My first week of lessons center around the idea that the library is a busy, exciting place to learn new things and to find books that they will enjoy. I also like to teach them that I am there to help them when they need guidance, whether it’s finding books on the shelves or finding information online. I remind them that I am a TEACHER and that the library media center is my classroom. Book care and checkout lessons happen the second week.

The lessons include a PDF and an editable Word format. Space is available within the lessons for you to add any standards you'd like or any that are required by your district. I also include a file with alternate book titles if you're having a hard time finding them.

Feel free to check them out and let me know what you think! After you download the files, be sure to first read the document called “READ ME FIRST” so you can get some important information about the lessons.
