These "dictionaries" contain words students use in everyday writing, such as: family words, number words, color words, school words, sports words, contractions, abbreviations, states, continents, and planets.
However they also contain all of the spelling words from the Macmillian/McGraw-Hill 2nd Grade Treasures Reading series, 2nd grade sight word list my district uses, and the academic vocabulary that our district uses for 2nd grade as well.
The spelling and sight words are listed alphabetically (along with other common words students use in their writing).
