    Does anyone allow going to the school library as a choice during their library station? I am thinking about making this available to my class this year and wanted to know if it seemed like a crazy idea. I am thinking they can go check out a book and read it in the library during that station. They would have a quiet timer...stop watch kind of thing. Has anyone done anything like this?

    Yes. I had a 6th grade mentor for one rotation. She read a book to them and then they took out a book. The other 2 groups went and our ed. tech. in the library (our librarian is not full time) would tell them when it was time to go back. (She had a schedule of who would be there and when) There were a couple of problems we ran into. 1 - Sometimes if the ed. tech. was not there, the library was unexpectedly closed. 2 - The kiddos sometimes forgot to bring their books back from home and couldn't check out a new one.
    But, you are not crazy for thinking this might work. :) Good luck!

    I guess it would depend on your librarian. Ours only does a whole class check out system once a week. She doesn't allow first graders to just come in and check out when they want.

    Our librarian welcomes open check out all day, everyday, for everyone. I know I will need to extensively model and let it be known this privilege can be taken away. I might just have it so they bring their just right books from the classroom to the library and just read on the comfy couches in there. IDK yet.
