Order in the Library

**Update: the bad news is Order in the Library was taken offline in 2012 but the good news is Mr. Lodge made Shelve-it, a game to practice shelving books.

Do you use Order in the Library in your library?  Order in the Library is an online library game provided by the University of Texas.  Students can practice sorting, shelving, and reordering books using the Dewey Decimal System.

I often have Order in the Library as a center.  My students love to choose a character, play, and try to get to the next level.  It's great because they are practicing putting books in order.   They have fun and I know they're practicing "shelving" -  win-win!
