Start the year right by reviewing title, author, and illustrator of a book with this editable, DIGITAL library orientation lesson for 1st grade classes.

This lesson is designed for distance learning, online teaching, or blended / hybrid instruction (part online, part face-to-face).  The teacher-librarian creates a read-aloud video to embed in the slides or provides an ebook with audio read-aloud features.  After listening to the book or watching the book video, students complete the response activity on the next slide.
