I want my students to be able to look in the dictionary so I have created this worksheet for them.
Every first class of the cycle, one of their routine activity is to look in the dictionary one word in French and one in English. On their handout, they have to write the page where they find the word and to write the translation.
I already have a word list for all my grades. As the students get older, the words they have to look for in the dictionary are more complex. In fact, if the word has more than one meanings, I try to ask the second or third meaning so they have to read completely the description.
I correct with them when they are done.
