6g students are new-to-the-school but their first library visit only needs to show them how to find and check out their first book. We don't need to talk about returning books (they haven't checked any out yet) or discuss online services (they'll only need a print book) or dictate rules that discourage them. They revisit 2 weeks later for Orientation Part 2 to learn Library Expectations (not “rules”) and can return their 1st book and check out new ones.
This lesson contains the lesson plan, 2 slide presentations with links to online resources (private ones accessible with links provided) and PDF Notes for presenter, 2 activity sheets, and 2 PDF slide presentations.
Library Orientation establishes our year-long relationship with students and teachers, so we need to minimize information and give students a hands-on experience that rejuvenates their interest in visiting the library. My interactive orientations with English/Language Arts classes focus on reading and gives students plenty of time to find and check out their first Fiction book of the school year.
