It's Dictionary Day today!
Did you know?... The very first dictionary was written by Noah Webster, (think of Webster's Dictionary). Webster began to write his dictionary at the age of 43. It took him 27 years to finish it! In addition to traditional English vocabulary, it contained uniquely American words. October the16th is Dictionary Day... so to celebrate, we must remember the importance of dictionary skills and seek to improve vocabulary. Celebrate with me! Here's my Free Alphabetical Order Unit Plan for Grades 1 - 2. Alphabetical Order is the most important dictionary skill. Get it here at TPT or here at Teachers Notebook. I would be so thrilled if you could leave a rating!
Happy Dictionary Day!
