Want to make dictionary work fun for your students? We know that just looking up the word and writing down the definition makes it hard for students to remember words. This graphic organizer is used to:
*increase your students' vocabulary in a concrete and rewarding way in any subject- language arts, math, science, social studies
*students access words in several ways using definitions, pictures or symbols and example sentences from the dictionary and text
*aligns with the Common Core Standards
*use one page for each word and organize them into 3-ring binders
*good activity for centers or engaging 2-3 students in teamwork
*an excellent resource especially for second language learners
*students can make their own dictionary by alphabetizing their pages
I have seen my students proudly use their new words in their writing and in conversations both casual and academic.
I will be constantly updating and modifying this resource, so keep an eye out. I would appreciate your feedback to help make this better for you, so please let me know! Thank You!
