This week during our visit to the library learning commons with Mrs. Meihaus, we had a lesson on how to find things in the library.
She taught us how to find things in the library, using call numbers. We learned the difference between FIC books (chapter books), E books (everybody picture books), and books that have PB in front of the FIC and E (which means that they are paperback). We also learned (or were reminded) that nonfiction books have numbers along with the first three letters of the author’s last name.
Then, she had us create our own call numbers–because we are all authors, after all! Some kiddos had blue cards that were for FIC books and yellow cards that meant we were E book authors. Kiddos wrote their call number on the sheet.
Then, we created HUMAN BOOKSHELVES, ordering ourselves based on our names on the shelf. This was really tricky, but since we are Roadrunners, and show our GRIT all the time, we did it!
Sounds pretty cool!
I think the fact that they acted it out made this make so much more sense to them!
