Any advice on how to get first graders to just behave in the library? I think the biggest problem is that our library time is at the end of the day when they're just over the day. I've been working with them on keeping their comments to themselves during read-alouds. They've gotten a handle on it when we're in the classroom, but in the library, they just can't keep quiet. The librarian doesn't react to it very well. The second thing is that after they get their books, they want to share them with each other and the noise level raises. They pay no attention to requests from the librarian or from me to cut the chatter. I've considered hanging on to their books after they check them out and giving them back once we get to the classroom, but that would just open the door to boredom and talking in the library. They were getting better before Spring Break, but this week was our first time back since the break and it's like September all over again. It was really bad. I'd consider cancelling their library time, but I don't think it would have any impact.
