Track and manage student learning at library centers with these PRINTABLE tracking booklets and learning badges for students to earn as they practice and/or master information and research skills!

During each library class, students earn a "stamp" in their booklet when they choose a library center. Additionally, if a section or project is completed, then students receive a larger badge sticker to show their learning.

NOTE: This is the printable version, designed for use with folded paper booklets and printed badge stickers. Click here to get the Digital Library Centers Menu and Badges if you prefer to use an online learning platform such as Google Classroom, SeeSaw, etc.

Teacher Notes (included with preview) to walk you through several ways to use this product and any supplies you may need.

Possible ways to use this product:

  • To remind students of behavior expectations and acclimate new students to the library centers model. Expectations are on page 1 of each booklet.
  • To give students a preview of the center choices they will have throughout the year and to encourage motivation
  • To visually show students what they are learning and have learned throughout the school year.
  • To record each student's center choice each week when used in conjunction with a checklist in Google Sheet or Excel spreadsheet (available FREE in the preview). This data can show you and administrators if students are visiting the same center over and over or exploring new learning experiences.
  • The spreadsheet checklist can also help you assess students' learning and make sure that each student gets the same learning opportunities.
  • To communicate and advocate the library curriculum and program to parents. Each of the 3 learning sections, or modules, explains what skills students have learned, and the back page can link to your library website and/or social media.
