This week one of our year-long goals came to fruition in the library. My wonderful coworker Tonia, who has a small sign business, created vinyl signs for our walls and shelves.
These signs will help students learn how to locate library materials independently. For instance, now students will have visual cues to help them find the chapter books, biographies, and fairy tales.
Plus, on the shelves, we've added letters to help students find books by authors' last names in the fiction section. In the nonfiction section, we put Dewey Decimal numbers to show where the 100's, 200's, etc. begin.
