Using Dictionaries in Third Grade

Here is a dictionary reference poster that our class made to help organize our thoughts about how dictionaries help readers and writers. I just copied a page out of our class dictionary on a color copy machine for the center.

Here is a quick practice for Using the Dictionary that my kids did at a work station. My students also just loved having time to explore the dictionary. That was the "May Do" part of the station and students would have loved more time there.

  3. Mrs. Young,
    I recently discovered your blog trying to find an interesting way to teach dictionary skills. I am student teaching in 3rd grade at a school in Chesterfield. I created the anchor chart with the students and it seemed to really help them better understand all the functions of a dictionary. Thanks so much for the great idea! Your blog will is awesome and will be a helpful resource for me in implementing new ways to teach topics. Keep up the great work!
