For kids who struggle with spelling, traditional dictionaries are nearly useless- students don't know the first few letters, so they can't find the word. Many student dictionaries simply contain too few words to be effective. This one contains over 1,000 words, compiled from several lists of the most commonly used words in the English language, but each letter page is brief enough for students to scan. Printed on two sides, this will use 10 sheets of paper. I have used binding and decorating these as a classroom activity. When you provide your class with a student dictionary, they begin learning much more during writing time.
