Here are 20 no-prep printables to help your students learn how to use the dictionary effectively. Some of them focus on specific skills and can stand alone, while others require the use of a dictionary. Worksheets that are used with a dictionary can be used with any printed English language dictionary, however, they will not work well with online dictionaries (due to a lack of guidewords, multiple entries on a page and other differences). Answer keys included when appropriate.
