It has been super helpful to be looking over this board that is filled with such great information. What I am curious about is the first week of school.... what are your plans like? If you are not open the first week, what does your first week of classes include?
THANKS in advance if you leave some helpful tidbits
My library is open during the first week. It just all depends if my tech department has our patron data ready for check out. If they do, we check out starting the first day. If not we don't. The first week of classes is all about the same issue you would do with a classroom: attendance, assigned seats, fire drill, rules, routines, getting to know each other. The only difference from a classroom is you do this many many times throughout the week.
Check out the threads and post additional questions if you have any and/or PM me any questions. Always willing to help. This school year will start my 9th year in Elementary Media and it will be my 16th year teaching.
