Dictionary Day Freebie!

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.  I would be so thrilled if you could leave a rating!

Happy Dictionary Day!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
