I am wondering if any of you wise men and women out there have suggestions for me. Here is the problem: When the students come to Library (which I am in charge of), the teachers do not stay to help. I am ok with that, but I am finding it difficult to try and check out the students' books and maintain some sense of order in the Library. I'm specifically talking about PreK, Kindy, and sometimes first grade. I have the students check out their books first and then line them up by the door. After that they are to sit quietly on the carpet area where I read stories after I have checked all of the students' books out. (This is where they get loud and out of control) I do check out first because I wasn't sure how much time to give them to find books. If I check out at the end I may either run out of time or have extra time on my hands. Any ideas how I could change this or make it better?
