This Valentine themed Dewey bundle will provide your students with practice in the nonfiction and fiction sections of the library. The Dewey Decimal February packet provides students with the opportunity to explore the nonfiction section of the library in a hands-on way. The Library Valentine Hunt has students using your online catalog system to identify call numbers and then they go out and locate the books on the shelf. I've included the full descriptions of both below.
This February themed Dewey Decimal System Write the Room includes three different opportunities for practice identifying the different sections in the nonfiction section of the library; it can also be used for assessment purposes. This packet contains the following:
• Two sets of cards to label your Dewey section of the library- black and white or color
• 3 different skill sheets
• Answer guides for each of the different activities
You simply label the shelves and allow students to examine the titles on the shelf to determine where the subjects on their sheet belong.
You can do this as an introductory lesson by giving students time to work on it and then coming back together to discuss how the books are grouped, or you can use it as extra practice after having introduced Dewey.
Library Valentine 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 fictional book that is about Valentine's Day. After reading the story, you will tell the students that some hearts are still 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
• Hearts for hiding in books
• Decorated cards with book titles
• Blank editable card template for adding your own titles
