I use this activity as independent practice during our Reading Block. After we have discussed the different parts of a dictionary, students complete the organizer to reinforce vocabulary and learned research skills. Students are able to choose their own entry word, and then find its part of speech, guide words, and page number.
This is also a great activity for:
*Guided reading lesson
*Part of speech lesson
*Interactive reading notebook (slice apart)
*Dictionary assessment (I have students write the definition of each word on the back of the page.)
