Dewey with Third Grade

 In third grade, students have been working to find books in the nonfiction section of our library.

I taught the students how the call numbers worked, and the arrangement of our library. They then worked to find different books using prepared cards that have and image of the book and the call number.

Students worked with a partner. One student found the book, and the other was a human shelf marker while the finder brought the book and the card to me or their teacher to check. Students then reversed roles. An added bonus was that many books in the nonfiction section were checked out, because students thought they looked interesting.
