Want a fun library game? Does anyone have a school pancake breakfast?
Whether you call them hotcakes, hoecakes, johnny cakes, or pancakes, your library students will “flip” for these fun Dewey flapjacks!
You will glue two pancakes back to back (one with a book title and the other with the matching Dewey Decimal System number). You may want to print them on card stock, or sandwich a cardstock circle in the middle, then laminate them. Students try to guess the Dewey number of the book title, then flip the pancake over to see if they are correct. (You can use a spatula from a dollar store, to add to the flipping fun!) I’ve included a Dewey chart, if you choose to use it.
The set also includes four blank pancakes (not editable online due to clip art restrictions, but you can type your own book titles and Dewey numbers in Word and paste them onto the pancakes before laminating, if you wish.) I did not include Biography (since different libraries use “B” or “92” or “921”), so you might want to mock up one of the blanks for Biography.
The set has an answer key.
There are two sets of flapjacks (24 in each, for a total of 48). The “plain” pancakes have easy Dewey numbers (such as 200s, 300s, 400s). The juicier “blueberry” pancakes have more detailed Dewey numbers (such as 523, 796, 821). You can use them with different grade levels, at the beginning and end of the year, or “batched” together for a mixed review!
Have a delicious day!
