Updated August 2017:
The dictionary now includes an alternative cover page with the words "Portable Word-Wall" (same graphics).
This is one of the most important writing resources in my third grade class and I wouldn't be without it. A request came to me to create a Kindergarten version of this product and here we are! I’m so excited to offer this new resource to Kindergarten/First grade teachers!
There are two versions of this 14-page personal dictionary included in this product: one version includes a picture next to each letter and the other is the letter-only version. Both include primary-printing lines (solid line/dashed line/solid line).
Students record their content vocabulary and any other words in the spaces provided and it then becomes an important reference tool. I've found that in the five or so years I've been using this resource, the quality of my students' independent writing skills have really improved. Sometimes, when one child asks for a great word to be spelled, I'll ask the entire class to record it in their Dictionary as well and before you know it, we're sharing writing pieces full of voice and great word choice!
A reminder that this version of the resource is intended for Kindergarten and first grade students.
I hope you find this product as useful as I do!
If after purchasing this resource, you find it’s not a four-star product for you, please email me so I can try to make it so. I’m happy to help and it takes no time at all. I can usually have the revised file back to you within 24 hours.
Thanks so much for visiting my store!
