Product Description
These personal spelling dictionaries are the perfect addition to your classroom needs! My students have always loved dictionaries - many often want to keep a dictionary in their book box to read! When I introduced their own spelling dictionary - they were so excited! They LOVE their own dictionaries. As a class I have them write certain words such as their classmates names, colors, days of the week, numbers 1-10, & questioning words - who, what, when, where, why. I also have them write certain sight words that they spell frequently such as friend, because, also, favorite, color, and more!

In my classroom I strongly emphasize phonetic spelling at the beginning of the year but also tell my students that there are some words that are spelled differently than they sound. When I notice students are spelling certain sight words a lot, I will have them put that sight word in their spelling journal. Sometimes, if a student asks me how to spell a word, I will think about the word. If it follows many phonics rules, I will tell them to sound it out. If the word doesn't really follow too many of the phonics rules, I will tell them the correct spelling & have them write the correct spelling in their dictionary to refer to later.
