Are there any librarians that use an Open Library concept? Help!!!
This is my first full-time contracted position and one that I do not have a lot of experience in. Elementary Library Media Specialist with 850 students! K-5... I only have to teach a lesson to Kindergarten. My main problem is scheduling. There are not enough days in the week or hours in the day to give each class their own "slot". I have 6 Kindergarten classes, 5 First Grade, 5 Second Grade, 6 Third Grade, 5 Fourth Grade and 6 Fifth Grade. Right now I have open library times for 3-5 grades where teachers can send students down between 9:43- 10:23 or 1:00- 2:30. This isn't working. I will have teachers that bring their entire class down, and others who send 5-8 students in a group and they just keep coming!!! I will have a line of 20 students to check out when Kindergarten is walking through the door for their "specials" class time. I have tried emailing teachers and asking them not to send students down after 10:15, so I can get everyone checked out before Kindergarten gets there. It is not working. Help!!!
