This packet of winter-themed library skills printables will help you reinforce important skills for your youngest library students. The packet includes several activities that will go along with your lessons on ABC order, what is an author?, fiction/nonfiction, dictionary skills, and parts of a book.
1. "Warm for Winter" ABC Order practice - Students write ten articles of warm winter clothing in alphabetical order.
2. Fiction or Nonfiction Cut & Paste - Students cut out books and arrange them in a chart to show which ones are fiction and which ones are nonfiction
3. Find the Guide Words - Students use a dictionary to look up winter-related words and then write down the guide words that were on the top of the page where each word was found
4. Parts of a Book Snowmen Cut & Paste - Students match up the words "Glossary," "Index," and "Table of Contents" with their definitions and then glue the matched up sets on a picture of snowmen.
5. Be an Author - Students write a sentence or two to go along with an illustration.
6. Nonfiction = True Facts (version 1) - This can be used as a follow-up activity when you read a nonfiction book about arctic animals to your students. After listening to you read the informational text, students will write a fact about an arctic animal and draw an illustration.
7. Nonfiction = True Facts (version 2) - As an alternative to the last activity, this page asks students to write any fact about winter and draw an illustration.
These activities are perfect for book checkout time or library centers! These worksheets could also be used in a K-2 classroom as part of ELA.
