Before Thanksgiving break, I showed my 3rd - 5th graders how to put a book on hold. There were certain rules they needed to follow in order to do this. I expected upon returning from a whole week off that I would need to review the steps. I was surprised to notice that 4 students had placed a book on hold, 3 of them successfully. When I called the students to come to the library to pick up their books, some of them were so excited that they half ran to me. Now, these 3 are my experts in these classes and I intend on finding at least one expert in each class.
*Putting a book on hold means that the student who places the hold will receive the book next when it is checked in. A pop-up message comes up if another student tries to check it out.
