Item Description...
This personal dictionary provides an initial list of 1,200 high-frequency words, including content-area words and "spelling demons," plus plenty of blank lines for new words chosen by the student or teacher. Additional words can be selected from textbooks, spelling lists, literature, or other sources. A section in the back of the book provides pages for new words that can be organized by content area, special interest, or other categories. The process of adding words that are relevant and personally meaningful engages students in learning and remembering. It also facilitates differentiated instruction by enabling each student to add words appropriate for that student. Students then refer to their personal dictionaries when writing, so the words' correct spelling is frequently used and reinforced. And as students expand the collection of words they recognize and use correctly, they gain confidence and a sense of ownership of our language.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good writing aid for kindergarden through second graders  Jan 10, 2000
I was very surprised to see that this site had listed this resource book as being appropriate for baby-preschoolers. What this book actually is is a SPELLING DICTIONARY (NOT a picture book, and there is no story!) designed for k-2nd graders to use to aid their writing. It is a tool that I have found enormously useful to my First graders, who quickly learn that rather than raise their hand to ask how to spell simple words like was, they can look them up themselves. This practice aids in alphabetization skills, and aquaints young students with the use of a dictionary in an easier-to-use format. When the student finds the correct page, they must then use phonetic sounding skills to help narrow the search to which word might be the one they are looking for. Spelling dictionaries give students an autonomous feeling that they become proud of. They integrate well into both Whole-language and phonetic-based instruction. This particular dictionary lists words as simple as in and as complicated as kangaroo. There are about 30 words for each letter, and 10-20 additional spaces to add words that pertain to units you are studying or words that the child just wished to use that weren't included. The print is a handwritten style, about size 18 or 20 if you compare it to word processor sizes. I find that large size print to be helpful for First grade, as the students' eyes don't skip to the wrong line as easily. There are some helpful sections in the back, including lists of months and their abbreviations, contractions, days of the week and their abbreviations, ordinal numbers, and places to list the names of classmates, friends, family, and pets. The only fault I find with this dictionary is that the handwriting is a little cramped at times and the letters occasionally touch each other, which can be confusing to children still learning letter formation. But on the whole, it's an important resource for fledgling writers at school or at home. For a spelling dictionary with more advanced words and a larger word listing per letter, look at My Spelling Dictionary by Nancy Shaw, Edupress. Happy writing!
