This week in fourth grade we played Library Tic-Tac Toe. Our goal was to practice using the library catalog, call numbers, and find books throughout the library.
I created Tic Tac Toe boards for the students to fill in. Students were given index cards with book titles and authors listed on them. They then:
- Wrote the title and author on their Tic-Tac-Toe Board
- Looked up the book in our online catalog
- Found the call number and recorded it on their board
- Located the book on the shelf
Kids were zooming all over the library trying to locate books. It was a lot of fun to see the students able to use the catalog to locate materials in the library and having fun to boot!
UPDATE I have had a lot of people ask for this document. I added it to my google docs. Click this link to make your own copy. Feel free to edit as needed. I did not print out the direction page.
