Hi TPT Friends!
Sometimes the dictionary is overwhelming for my emergent writers!
Essentially, this is a 33-page resource for your students to quickly look up common words as they begin to revise and edit their own writing pieces.
There are over 1000 words including all of the Dolch High Frequency words. Each page has a place for your kiddos to add personal words.
I’ve also included an individual page for:
Days & Months
Each time students in my class asked me to help them spell a word, I ask them to bring their Big Book of Words with them and we write it in the appropriate place.
My school has been purchasing a hard copy of a similar product for years. We spend about $2.00 per student on the QuickWord Handbooks. In an effort to save my school some money, I developed this similar product. Purchase this once, and use it over and over each year for your emergent writers.
At the beginning of each year, I laminate the covers and use our school’s bookbinder to assemble a book for each student. They easily last all year and the kids love taking them home at the end of the year.
