I make this dictionary for my kids to keep in their desk. When we add a new word to the word wall (we do this weekly on Word Wall Wednesday), then we all write it in our dictionary. I love this because then I don't have to spell "awesome" 30 different times. Especially if it is a word they need to know or use a lot in their writing. This has saved me a lot of time. If they ask how to spell a word, I tell them to check their dictionary and word wall. If it isn't there, they check our class dictionary to see if they just forgot to write it down. If they can't find it in any of them, then they may ask me.
