This site offers 11 levels of practice to help students learn how to use a virtual library. They learn sorting, shelving, and reordering (placing mixed up books in the correct location) with a simple game. Sorting is level 1, shelving is levels 2 - 8, and reordering is levels 9 - 11. Players practice their alphabetizing skills, numerical arranging skills and knowledge of the Dewey Decimal system at 4 levels from expert to super genius. There is a short tutorial that you can view to understand the site. This site is also available in Spanish. At the end of activities, they can print out a certificate (useful for teachers to know students have been successful, but it does kill trees.)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a preview to a trip to the library to explore library organization. This is also an engaging and practical application for understanding numerical order for math. ELL and ESL students will have no problems with language at any of these levels since it requires no more than a simple understanding of numbers and the alphabet.
