Using the theme have students pick out pieces that are fiction vs nonfiction.
Possible read-alouds: The Library Pages OR the Library Gingerbread Man
Ask students--How do I know where your books are? If you ask for a unicorn book how do I know how to find it?
What is the difference between fiction and nonfiction (use some book examples to help answer this question).
Students should know
Fiction and Nonfiction are on different sides of the library
The difference between the two.
That the call numbers stand for the sections of the library.
That we have helping signs in the library that tell us where books are.
Watch one of the basic Dewey Videos
Challenge--Basic (ABC) shelver OR write down their names and line up in ABC order.
If you have time for a day 2--Dewey Bingo plus additional video.
Pay no attention the (wo)man behind the curtain!
