    dictionaries

    This year I decided to make my own dictionaries for the kids. I used the list of most commonly used words from the stories of previous years.
    I alphabetized them and typed them in COMIC SANS
    #24. I like that font because it is the closest to their own printing. After that I ran off enough copies for everyone and put them in the plastic sleeves you use for scrapbooks. I then
    added lined paper ( about 10 pages ). I put all this together in a paper cover with the three brads in the middle and pockets on each cover.
    The kids wrote the letters of the alphabet on the lined papers. ( about 3 lines to a letter ) When they need a word that is not in the dictionary, they must come to me with the dictionary turned to the right letter and a pencil in hand. I spell the word for them to add to their own dictionary. It is really nice to have this reference and the parents see their dictionary at the end of the year and marvel at the words their
    kids have wondered about . Have Fun
