Program Board with Media Center Helper ideas. Helpers - to be named... Put slips in pockets with name of "helper" activity they can select when they come to help in the media center. Examples: Shelve Books Straighten Shelves (have sections listed) Dust Shelves Sharpen Pencils Clean Tables Book Level in E books (with PERMISSION ONLY) etc.
