Junior and Senior fiction books (imaginative stories) are arranged by the author's last name. That means the books on the shelves are in alphabetical order. For example: If you want to find Pig the Pug you need to know it is written by Aaron Blabey. That means it is on the B shelves. B is the first letter of his last name. It is also Junior fiction so it has JF on the spine label to tell you which section of the library to put the book in.
Let's Practice the Alphabet!
Choose an activity. If you have trouble with alphabetical order, ask your teacher for an alphabet chart.
Download the worksheet below. Open and print it to the library printer. Take it to the library tables and put the words in alphabetical order. Begin by writing the alphabet on the back of the sheet.
Download "Alphabetical order" and save it in your class folder. Open the file and drag and drop the words into the apples in alphabetical order. It is easy to fix a mistake if you change your mind - just drag the word to the new place.
Don't forget to type your name and class at the top of the page.
When you are finished, print your work to the library printer.
Now that you have practiced alphabetical order, you can try putting a few virtual fiction books on shelves. After this practise, you will go into the library and put the real books away on the shelves.
