Third graders are learning skills to help them find books independently in the library. First they learned how to use the library's online catalog, OPALS, to find the call numbers for books.
Great teamwork searching for call numbers!
Then they practiced putting things in alphabetical order, including letters, words, and finally call numbers on students posing as books.
Are these "books" in alphabetical order yet?
After the alphabetical order practice, the scholars were able to find fiction books on the library shelves, because those books are in alphabetical order by the authors' last names. The third graders are so proud of their skills in searching and finding books independently!
