 3 students work at a table in a school library with text: 6 essential centers for research, reading, and more.K-5 Year One School Library Lesson Plans Bundle on wood background.This product is also part of the Library Centers Toolkit and the Year 1 School Library Lesson Plans Bundle!


Just imagine having a low prep library center ready to go for every month of your school year! You’ll copy these centers, glue to butcher paper, and add markers. Your students will respond to the writing prompts and discuss their answers. I also show you how to extend each center into a full library lesson!

Every month, I use a butcher paper writing center in my elementary school library. I simply glue the text and picture to a length of butcher paper and add a tub of markers. Students write their responses and discuss them with each other.

I love these learning centers because they are super simple to set up and they work for multiple grade levels. The completed lists are colorful seasonal displays of student work for our library walls, to show that we are engaged in learning here in our school library media center!
