My (FREE) Library Scope and Sequence

UPDATE (February 16, 2018): I created this scope and sequence in 2013, using the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner. They are not aligned to the AASL Standards Framework for Learners.

As I formed my Elementary Library Curriculum Map, I also created a document detailing the scope and sequence of the lessons. The library scope and sequence at Bay Port Blue Point UFSD was a great help in putting this together!

This document includes objectives, focus questions, and AASL Learning Standards correlations. Basically, the only things missing are the procedures and assessments. You can open it by clicking the image above or by clicking the following link:

My schedule may seem strange to you (described here), and it requires a more succinct set of essential lessons than what most of us may be accustomed to. No matter, I hope it blesses someone out there!

Please forgive any errors you find and alert me to them. Also, please contact me with any questions you may have or if you'd like for me to email the original Word document to you so you can edit it to suit your needs.

Yours Happily Ever After, 


  1. I LOVE this! As a new Media Technology Specialist this has been a great help to me. Thank you for sharing!! One question: what is BARK (appropriate library behavior)?

  2. BARK was our school's acronym for our behavior motto. Sorry - I didn't realize that was on there :)

  3. Just curious...what does it stand for? I need something catchy for my school.

  4. Well, it could be anything that follows this pattern... Be ____, Act ____, Respect (Responsibility or any other "R" character trait), and Kindness (or any other "K" character trait)

  5. Hello! I was wondering if I could still get this document in Word? I am from a very small district and am on my own! I would love something like this to help guide me!

  6. Absolutely amazing work! Many thanks!

  7. I contacted the Superintendent at Blue Point, LI hoping to get a Word file of above and while he did reply, he was new and didn't have access to the document. I'm almost done retyping it and will share when I fine tune it. Many thanks for posting!
