Monday, September 19th was International Talk Like a Pirate Day and to celebrate in the library, third graders went on a Dewey Decimal System treasure hunt. First, we read "Edward and the Pirates" by David McPhail. "Edward and the Pirates" is always huge hit.
Throughout the library, I had placed an X in each Dewey 100's section. Partners received treasure maps to fill in with spine label information and the title of the book they identify in the 100's section with spaces to identify one book from each section. We will use this information to decide what kinds of books belong in each section as we learn about the organization of the library this year.
