Vocabulary


Alphabetical order, author’s last name, spine label


Activity

Read an alphabet story. Ask students what kind of order the story was in (alphabetical, ABC). Ask students what else is in alphabetical order (the phone book, their names on the roll, etc.). Explain that the books on the shelf in the picture section are in alphabetical order, too. Include they are in order by the author’s last name, not the book title. Why? (in case there are two books with the same title, or you’re not sure of the exact title) Explain that alphabetical order makes it easier to find the book- it is always in the same place. Tie into last week’s lesson on books having a particular “address”.

Share another alphabet story, emphasizing the order and comparing it to the shelves. (You may even want to walk around the library and point to the areas as you get to that letter.)

Closure


Have students line up in alphabetical order by their last name, pretending to be books on a shelf.
