Product Description

From School Library Journal

A clever guide to teach elementary children the Dewey Decimal System. Each of the 10 chapters is dedicated to one of the 10 major Dewey categories and is divided further into more specifics within each one. The handbook itself is designed in the fashion of the DDS: from generalities to specificities of each major category. The author has included reproducible handouts for use within library media instruction, such as Dewey Decimal Classification BINGO, word searches, matching games, and more. Students will certainly have fun with these activities while gaining an understanding of library classification, and school librarians and teachers will also benefit from Findlay's discussions of how to teach it.-Jodi Kearns, University of Akron, OH

useless & misguided Jan. 13 2008

Format: Paperback
Luckily I received this FREE or I would return it somehow. I feel the School Library Journal review was written by someone who has never tried to teach Dewey to elemntary school students in a public school. With the limited time I have with students I wouldn't waste their time with "busy work" like acrostics, word searches and puzzles which fill time NOT brains.

Worst of all are the surveys that when teaching the 200's (religion) and the 4oo's(language) ask students to state their religious affiliations and how often, or if, they attend church.
Also, the author lists FICTION books as resources for every Dewey classification which is nothing if not confusing.

This book was delivered in a timely fashion and includes precisely what I wanted. It has activities for elementary children of all ages.
