This Fall themed activity challenges your students to delve into the dictionary to apply their guide word skills. Students will also refer to the dictionary to determine the precise meaning of the entry words as they create an illustration for each.
*** Please note: This activity is included in my "Dictionary Skills - Fall & Autumn ABC Order and Guide Words CCSS Activities," but I am offering it separately here for teachers who might want to purchase the activity without the whole unit. ***
On this activity page, your students will use a dictionary to look up each entry word listed in the table. They will write both guide words, and will create a small illustration of what the word means.
The worksheet is in ink-saving black & white.
I created this activity with my 3rd graders in mind, but it can be used appropriately with many 2nd graders. It is aligned with the following Common Core ELA-Language Standards:
** Second Grade (L.2.2.E) and (L.2.4.E)
** Third Grade (L.3.2.G) and (L.3.4.D)
You will find the following included:
* Relevant Common Core Standards and introduction (1 page)
* Printable - Raking Through the Dictionary (1 page plus 1 page instructions)
* Answer Key (1 page) - Please note that this page is not a true Answer Key. It is a page that states that answers will vary depending upon the dictionary used, as well as upon each student’s artistic interpretation.
