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.
Students return 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.
My interactive orientation with 6g 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.
