This year I am teaching library to the 1st and 2nd graders one hour per week. I am looking for some good lesson plans for this. I want library to be a class they look forward to instead of the class that they dread like in the past. I appreciate any help or lessons you share. Thank you!

If you haven't purchased the Scholastic books Teaching With Favorite Read-Alouds, you need to. They them for grades Pre-K - 5th, I think. I teach K-2, and refer to books many times throughout the year for some great lesson ideas.

I was an elementary librarian, I did genre studies and author studies with my first graders. It was amazing what the kids retained from week to week.
First we looked at two genres: realistic fiction and fantasy fiction. We talked about what was specific for each one.
Then I did an author study on Arnold Lobel.. I read one of Lobel's books (Frog and Toad are Friends). The students looked at what made a book fantasy or realistic and decided that this was a fantasy book. (Animals don't talk.) Then we did an author student on Cynthia Rylant. I read one of Rylant's books (about the dog? Mudge?) and the students decided it was realistic.
I did a unit on Caldecott Award Winners, cumulative stories, Leo Lionni (I chose a vocabulary word from each book. (Inch by Inch-notable; It's Mine (selfish). After reading the book, I asked them to explain why that word was used in the story.

For the second grade, I continued the Caldecott study--harder books; Syslvester and the Magic Pebble, The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship, etc.
I also started reading longer books: Author study on Patricia Polacco.
Then, I introduced them to chapter books: Magic Tree House, Bailey School Kids.
