Do you have Seesaw? I created cards with different topics on it and shared those as an activity that students do every 2-3 weeks for book drive thru.  I also have one I created for ipad that links right to our page for our library catalog.  Would any of this help to share with you?

Subject: [aisle] Interest Checklists for Student Checkout (K-2)

Many of our K-2 students will return for part-time, in-person instruction mid-October. I've been told that students will not be allowed to come to the library, nor can we bring a cart of pre-selected books to classrooms. Students are to have 0 contact w/a book unless it is checked out to them. I don't think I will have trouble teaching my 2nd graders how to search Destiny Discover for books and put them on HOLD, but I think our K-1 students will have difficulty. I suggested teaching parents how to log into Destiny Discover  (how-to video) with their child and help them select/Hold books, but there was concern that parents might influence their child's selections.

It has been suggested that I create some sort of subject checklist for students to use to indicate books that interest them. I'm trying to wrap my head around this, especially when it comes to fiction. I plan to use pictures/words for nonfiction subjects, but for fiction, I can't think of what to do, other than leaving blank lines for them to attempt to write titles/characters of books they like. This is to be done in the classroom once a week. My students are very visual--many ELs.

Before I try to re-invent the wheel, I thought I'd see if any early elementary school librarians out there have already come up with something like this...or have suggestions/resources?

Thanks in advance for any ideas or resources you might have!
