This power point is meant as a year long daily activity to increase accuracy and understanding of how to use a dictionary. The 180 words have been carefully selected to assist the student with vocabulary building as well. We have included printable slides to be used daily for the students to record their word, part of speech, meaning, any synonyms and antonyms, and a example sentence. We have also included the recording sheet for the First Grade Word of the Day for those students who may not be ready for the more detailed recording sheet. The words are presented in alphabetical order, but can be used in any order you see fit.
We have a pdf file of the journal slides available as a free download if you find printing the slides to be a problem.
We here at What We Get Up To hope that your students find this activity rewarding.
