100 % of my students report that they have, on occasion, been unable to find what they were looking for in the library... so I recatalogued the collection to a system based on topic and genre-- In addition, children at my school do not learn decimals until the end of fourth grade (pre-k 4 school). METIS, adapted from the system used at the Ethical Culture School in New York, eliminates the Dewey Decimal System!

I used some book fair money to afford the $150.00 CD which has images large enough to print. I will do this over the later part of this vacation week to post for my students. I think I will use them to 'teach', especially the kindies, how to use the pictures to find what they are looking for.
With any luck, they will discover sections beyond Star Wars and Princesses!
