Personal Student Dictionary

Personal Student Dictionary

(0)
Are you bombarded every day with students asking you to spell the same words over and over again? Have students take charge of their spelling and writing with this personal student dictionary! This personal student dictionary will help students improve their spelling, reading and writing skills. When a student asks you to spell a word, have them write it down in their personal dictionary. The word will now be “theirs”! Already included in this personal student dictionary are Fountas and Pinnell sight words as well as Dolche sight words. I like having students highlight the sight words as they become secure in reading them. These are also great references for older grades or ELL students! *Student Cover *a page for every letter complete with cute clip art *sight words *spaces for students to add their own words An extra lined sheet is included at the end of this personal student dictionary so that you can double side the pages for extra writing space. To make this dictionary last all year, print the cover on colourful card stock or paper or use a three hole punch and keep in pronged report folders.
