Learning the OPAC

Second Grade students have been learning to use the OPAC. We have been looking at book records on our computer and using our skill with call numbers to figure out where the books live in our library. We know that there are three main "neighborhoods" in the library: Easy books (call number start with E), Fiction (call numbers begin with F), and Dewey numbers. We also learned that biographies have a B call number and that book and tape kits have "KIT" call numbers. Soon we'll be able to tell whether a book is in the library and find our own books on the shelves. That's a skill we'll use for the rest of our school time!
