This week, Grade 4 students had one of their annual library sessions on finding books on the shelves. They hunted for the books with the toughest call numbers to track down — nonfiction books.
To ease into it, we practiced ordering decimals.
Students talked about finding a shelf that matched the hundreds digits on their card, then hunting the tens digit, etc. They also said they used the call numbers to get to the general area, and then looked at titles. They used the picture signs in the nonfiction section, and tried again if they got lost.
Ms. Karen congratulated them on finding the books with the toughest call numbers in the library!
