Lesson Plans

I apologize for making you wait so long. Without further ado...

Library Sparks
This link takes you to the magazine's homepage. Here, you can subscribe or try out a free issue. There are also web resources with some lesson ideas and plenty of worksheets. You can also browse all the previous web resources. They also have indexes for previous issues, but I have been unable to find a way to order back issues. I would suggest contacting them if that is something that interests you, or applying for an ILL.

Read Write Think
This site is not a library site, but was found to be very helpful by library media specialists. Each lesson plan is very comprehensive and includes a variety of supplemental resources.

Hanover County Public Schools
There are a bunch of lessons for Kindergarten through eighth grade with occasional worksheets littered throughout. One helpful aspect about these is the inclusion of national standards (it also indicates standards for the state of Virginia).

School Library Media Activities Monthly
Not only can you get a subscription, but you can access select articles online. There is also the Activities Almanac with brief lesson ideas for specific days of the month. Into the Curriculum is a great place to build a bridge between the library and the classroom with standards driven lesson plans.

Library Media Connection
I highly recommend the print version of this source for both lesson plans and professional development. The website is lacking, but does have some things of note on their New Hot Stuff page.
