Introduce your school library and teach students about behavior expectations and book care with these editable, easy-to-prep orientation lessons for kindergarten library classes!
After reading one of the five (5) picture books aloud to the class, students check out new books from the library, and then complete the response activity in their printable response booklet. For remote learning or distance learning, the printable booklet can be sent home for up to 5 weeks of library lessons in districts who do not have access to 1:1 devices.
Note: This product is designed to be printed and handed out to students. If you prefer an all-digital version, you might like the Library Orientation Digital Read-alouds instead.
