Students learned a bit about Melvil Dewey and how nonfiction books are organized. We watched the very popular "Dewey Rap" (which can be found on our library website-- at the top).
I handed back their notes from the previous week. Students chose ONE favorite and created a bookmark about that topic that included its Dewey number.
Bookmarks have been laminated and will be handed back to students. Here is a sampling of some of the finished products:
As a bonus, students have enjoyed playing the Shelver game during library centers. Students virtually "shelve" nonfiction books using their Dewey skills.
Access shelver from home for more Dewey fun!
