Product Description

A dictionary is a very valuable study tool, but how do you teach a young student to begin using a dictionary?

This set of two workbooks takes a student step-by-step through all the things he needs to know to quickly look up words in a simple dictionary so that he can learn the definitions.

In Workbook 1, students do a lot of fun research-type activities; they learn alphabetizing through the 3rd and 4th letters, and learn to find words quickly using alphabetical order and guide words.  Workbook 2 introduces the entry itself, the definition, sample sentences, pictures, and pronunciation.  The course also provides an introduction to the special "jobs" that words have in sentences, and that words have more than one meaning.  Both workbooks are designed so that students can do most of the activities on their own and make good progress with little assistance from a teacher.
