Making Learner Connections At Your School Library...Week One of School Library Month!

This year the theme for School Library Month is Making Connections at Your School Library, which brings together four special weeks of School Library Month subthemes including:
  • Making Learner Connections 
  • Making Educator Connections 
  • Making Community Connections 
  • Making Global Connections
As we kick off the month and week one, let's take a closer look at Making Learner Connections at Your School Library. 
As the AASL School Library Month states, 

Librarians are encouraged to host events and activities that will help their school and local community celebrate the essential role that strong school library programs play in transforming learning.  You will find lots of ideas for elementary, middle and high school activities here from the School Library Month Committee. 
You also won't want to miss the AASL webinar this week with Elizabeth Burns, Making and Assessing Learner Connections Through The AASL Standards on April 4.  You can register for this free webinar here.
Based on these ideas and several more that I brainstormed, I created the Collection for Week 1, Making Learner Connections.  I will be creating a Collection for all four of the weeks.  
One suggestion they have for high school activities is to celebrate Earth Day so I created....
the Earth Day Collection full of lots of activities, books, projects, songs and fun.
And with Poetry Month always being here in April, I love Rhonda Jenkins idea from the Future Ready Librarian Group. What a wonderful way to tie in poetry, while making it meaningful and fun. 

Of course, I added all of these things to the Week 1 Collection.  

Please let me know what else we should add or if you'd like to become a collaborator. I'd love to have you help. 
These Collections will also be found in the 2018 School Library Month Collection too.  Remember...every week of April I will add a new Collection. 

I hope you having a fantastic start to School Library Month, friends.  Thank you for checking our Making Learner Connections Collection too.
