    CHALLENGE ACTIVITY 1:  Just for fun!!!

    Go to the following link:

     

    http://www.mrs-lodges-library.com/play-shelver/

     

    Practice placing call numbers in alphabetical order.  Complete all three levels.  Continue the game until you feel comfortable placing letters in alphabetical order.  The games will change each time you play them.

    Track you time on level 3 by creating a log of your attempts to get the correct answer for each level.  The goal is to see if the time it takes you to finish each level is shortened by your practice.  For example, the first time it may take you 5 minutes to put three call numbers in alphabetical order and the third time it may only take you two minutes.  The faster you do it correctly, means your are perfecting your skills and ability to process the letters.

    Remember fiction books are placed in alphabetical orders using the first three letters of the author's last name.  Have fun challenging your skils.  Time your games and track your progress.  Write down how long it takes you to complete Level 3 and watch your skills improve.
