This personal spelling dictionary will be a great addition to your classroom. Simply print the pages back-to-back and staple. The dictionary is perfect in a writing folder or three-hole punched for a binder. Encourage and expect your students to always use correct spelling. When they are unsure of the spelling for a word they want to use, they first check the page in their spelling dictionary. If the word is not there, the student will bring the dictionary to the teacher and you will write the word in for them. Now it is part of their personal spelling dictionary and you won’t have to spell it for them again!
I purposely created only a few specialized word lists. Most words that students use will be listed on the alphabetical pages. The words will be quicker and easier to find than having students look through several different lists.
The holiday word lists are optional. They are located at the end of the dictionary, so you can omit them if they do not meet your needs.
