One skill that my students need the most help with is how to use a dictionary. I use this word book to incorporate dictionary skills and experiences in the classroom. My students use this word book as a resource to figure how to spell words while working, epecially on writing. When students are unsure of how to spell a word they need to check their word book first. If the word is not there I will help them add it to their book. This is a great way to motivate students to become independent and resourceful!
