Elementary Librarian

From her About Me page: Welcome to ElementaryLibrarian.com! I am Jocelyn, an Elementary Librarian (Library Media Specialist) and Educational Technology advocate. I started this website because my state recently switched to the Common Core standards, and I wanted my elementary library lesson plans to be aligned to those standards. I have constantly been on the lookout for library lesson plans that incorporate the Common Core standards and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) standards. I could not find exactly what I was looking for, so I decided to spend my summer (and beyond) creating it! Click here to view my library lesson plans!
On this website, you will find lesson plans, activities, and resource recommendations designed to integrate the Common Core standards and AASL standards into elementary libraries. School librarians are more important than ever in today’s digital world, so I hope this website will help you, the elementary librarian, teach your students the 21st Century skills they need to succeed!
