Library Centers at AASL, 2015

Edie Crook and I presented a session about Elementary Library Centers at AASL. Thank you to those of you who joined us in the IdeaLab and in our concurrent session! We love your enthusiasm for centers and hope they bring the joy, excitement and friendliness to your libraries that they’ve brought to ours!

As we presented at the IdeaLab, the most requested resource was a list of centers. I cannot post the video online because of student photos, but I will transcribe the video and add that list here for you.

Our presentation is below. I hope you enjoy this tour through library centers Edie and I currently do in our libraries and some we hope try in the future.

If you would like to download our new Centers Starter Kit, it is free through TeachersPayTeachers at my store. There is a centers sale currently happening through Tuesday. If you need something from my store, Cari Young’s or Jessica Lodge’s, make sure you stop in before the sale is over!

    My favorite part of the conference was this presentation and finding a kindered spirit when it comes to helping kids find books rather than being the checkout police. Serious heartfelt appreciation to you, Edie, Cari, and Jessica for all of your sharing over the years and changing how I view & use the previous time I have with my students each week.

    Mrs. Lodge was there?! THE Mrs. Lodge!? ACK! Cannot believe I missed her – I needed to thank her for the hours of fun provided by her Shelver game.

    And I missed/miss you too, Carolyn. : (

    Thanks for posting & hope to see you IRL soon.
