BEST Teacher Library & Palomar Menu of Services

BEST Library that highlights over 100 books, DVD's, and other supplemental materials for children of all elementary ages. These materials can be checked out by any staff member at the school to use for review at staff and or grade level meetings, in the classroom, at monthly assemblies, and on the playground. Materials are separated by various school rule categories and subject matters including anti-bullying, preparing students to deal with anger, making friends, classroom management, and behavior support. These materials can also assist teachers with their lesson plans and teaching moments to encourage positive behavior and expected school rule behaviors.

Each item can be checked out for a two week period and instructions for check-out procedures are in the attachment. It would be great that the attachment and information could be provided or emailed to teachers so they can request and utilize the items as well.
