Teaching Library Collaboratively

Hi all! I am a second grade teacher studying to be an administrator. My own administrator has asked me to do some research regarding new approaches to library education at our school and possible collaborative teaching between the librarian and the classroom teachers. Currently, the students receive library as part of their encore specials rotation once a week but he is replacing library with our spanish program and would like library to take the place of spanish (kids were pulled twice/week in small groups for spanish). Any suggestions, advice, ideas would be greatly appreciated!

A survey may be helpful.

Hi, I am a newbie, so I may be suggesting something that has not worked out in the past. this is my first year in the library and I am very excited. I am not a certifiable librarian. Our resources are extremely limited and I am trying to put together a Picasso with no brushes basically(or so I feel). So, my position is quite different than yours. I am assuming you have some great tech resources. The one thing that I thought would be helpful for me and the teachers, for collaboration in any way is to make a type of survey. I could hand it out during in-service. I want to ask them how I can be of assistance to them. Ideas that I have come up with are assistance with citing papers, helping choose secondary reading, teaching dewey decimal with an awesome book I was given, and just plain asking on the survey, how I can be of assistance and what they would like to see in the library this year. I was surprised at the feedback that I have received verbally, so far. I have been asked if I would be willing to facilitate AR. I am also open to ANY helpful ideas. We do not have a scanning system where the books are indexed in a computer. i would love to know what the price is on that type of system or even website or names to lead me in the right direction.

We are a 3-5 building with over 400 students. There are 18 classes, 6 of each grade level. Teachers have a fixed library time each week (they have chosen this time) and there are also Open Library times sprinkled throughout the day whenever a class isn't scheduled . Each week I service those 18 classes, rescheduling when assemblies, snow days, conferences ,etc interrupt our schedule. Teachers stay with the class during the 30 minutes.
When classes are working on specific themes/studies, I gather books on the subject for them to use in the classroom.
Throughout the year I teach Dewey categories, genres, library use, and I read ,read ,read to promote books and reshelve books constantly.
This is the very best job, I am so thankful to be in this position.
If you have further questions, send me a PM.
