This packet is perfect for introducing AND reinforcing dictionary skills. I have included several activities, printables, and center activities.
Pages 4-30: Alphabetical Order
Students will first work on putting letters in ABC order, then move on to words (by first letter and second letter). I have included letter/word cards and 5 worksheets for whole class/small group instruction, as well as 2 center activities with 2 worksheets to extend the learning.
Pages 31-49: Using a Dictionary
My Dictionary Booklet: Students will find the word listed on each page and write the page number where they found it. Then they can write the definition of each word or use it in a sentence and draw a picture. I have included words related to school (book, pencil, etc) and a page without a word so you can add any words you want.
Dictionary Detective: Students can also choose a word, look it up in the dictionary and complete the information about the word, such as definition(s), part of speech, synonyms, etc. I have included 3 versions of this worksheet.
Pages 50-57: Guide Words
Students will find a word in the dictionary and list the guide words for the page they found the word on. They will also sort word cards under the correct guide words.
