This product is a .zip file that includes the three packets listed above in .pdf format. In the three .pdf files, there are sixteen print-and-go activities for your kindergarten and first grade library learners:
1. Cool Call Number Cats - A worksheet that asks students to color code some cute cats based on the type of call numbers on their bellies (easy reader, fiction, or nonfiction). Two versions of the SAME activity are included - one with "FIC" as the first line of a fiction call number and one for libraries that use "F" as the first line of a fiction call number. This pairs nicely with any of your favorite cat read alouds!
2. Where Do These Books Belong? - An activity in which students cut out and group books about four different subjects and then glue them in the right places on another page.
3. Easy ABC Order: Sorting Colors - This is a quick assessment of students' understanding of alphabetical order. Students simply write four colors in ABC order.
4. Butterfly Color by Call Number - Students color code an adorable butterfly based on the call numbers in each area of the butterfly. This helps to reinforce lessons on differentiating between easy reader, fiction, and nonfiction call numbers. Two versions of the SAME "color by call number" activity are included - one with "FIC" as the first line of a fiction call number and one for libraries that use "F" as the first line of a fiction call number.
5. Polite Words ABC Order Practice - In this activity, students arrange five words/phrases in ABC order and glue them on another page in the correct order. The words and phrases are all "polite" words such as "please," "thank you," and "excuse me." This works well when reading Please, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony or when discussing manners with your students.
6. Super Shelf Marker Coloring Page - This cute coloring page will be so fun for your kindergarteners to color during your lessons on how to use a shelf marker.
7. Illustrations Worksheet - This page allows students to color the letters in the word "illustrations," includes the definition of "illustrations," and asks students to draw an illustration of their favorite animal.
8. Library ABC Order - On this page, students rewrite eight library-related words in alphabetical order.
9. Title Worksheet - This page allows students to color the letters in the word "title" and includes the definition of "title." To provide you with different options, two versions of the same activity are included - one asks students to pretend that they are an author and to write the title of their first book, and a second version of this worksheet asks students to write the title of the book that was read today.
10. Fiction Mice or Nonfiction Mice? - This page asks that students color code pictures of mice based on whether they have a fiction or nonfiction call number on their backs. Two versions of the same activity are included to meet the needs of your library; one has fiction abbreviated as "FIC" and one has fiction abbreviated as "F".
11. Character Worksheet - This worksheet defines the word "character" in a story and then asks students to draw characters. This worksheet allows for flexibility because three versions of this activity are included; one asks students to draw characters from the book that was just read in library class, one references drawing characters from a book that was just read together, and one asks students to draw their favorite characters from their favorite fiction books.
12. Animal ABC Order Cut & Paste - Students must cut out, arrange, and glue the names of five animals in ABC order.
13. These Call Numbers Are Bananas! - Students color code some cheerful bananas, with colors depending on whether the bananas are holding Easy Reader Fiction call numbers ("E") or nonfiction call numbers
14. Fiction Coloring Page - On this coloring page, there is a definition of "fiction" and some fun illustrations that look like the types of images that would be found in a fiction book.
15. Nonfiction Coloring Page - On this coloring page, there is a definition of "nonfiction" and some images that look like illustrations that could be found in a nonfiction book.
16. Fiction and Nonfiction Bookmarks - This page includes four bookmarks for students to color as a follow-up to a lesson on fiction and nonfiction.
I hope your students enjoy these activities! These are no prep activities that can be used at different points throughout the school year, and they are perfect for reinforcing your lessons on ABC order, call numbers, shelf markers, fiction vs. nonfiction, and basic library vocabulary.
