This Back to School Dewey bundle will provide your students with practice in the nonfiction and fiction sections of the library. The Back to School Dewey Decimal packet provides students with the opportunity to explore the nonfiction section of the library in a hands-on way. The Library Back to School Hunt has students using your online catalog system to identify call numbers and then they go out and locate the books on the shelf in the fiction section of the library. I've included the full descriptions of both below.
This Back to School themed Dewey Decimal System Exploration provides an opportunity for students to collaboratively determine the categories that are represented in each section of the nonfiction section of the library. The groups will need to justify their thinking through writing. This packet contains the following:
• Two different sets of cards to choose from to label your Dewey section of the library
• 3 different choices of recording sheets
• Answer guides
You simply label the shelves and allow students to examine the titles on the shelf they've been assigned to determine where the subjects on their sheet belong.
This is an introductory lesson to Dewey. After giving students time to work on it, come back together to discuss how the books are grouped.
Library Back to School Hunt gives students the opportunity to collaboratively use the online catalog system in the library to find the call number of easy and fiction books and then actually physically locate the book on the shelf in the library. The lesson begins with a read aloud of any book that is centered around back to school. After reading the story, you will tell the students that some kids are hiding in the library, and you need their help in locating them. Let the fun begin!
The following items are included in this packet:
• Game Directions
• Kids reading for fun hiding in books
• School themed cards with book titles
• Editable card template for adding your own titles
