Dictionary Activities

Give your students quick skills with using a dictionary by having them do some of the following activities:
  • Estimate where certain letters (where words that start with that letter) are in the dictionary just by looking at the side of a closed dictionary.
  • Figure out which way to flip through the book to get to certain words.
  • Race to find words.
  • Find the part of speech of the first definition of a given word.
Your kids will have a great time doing this and they will learn basic dictionary skills as well.
