Product Description:

With its pages of thoughtful exercises teaching students everything they need to know about using a dictionary and thesaurus, we think this book is one of the best for this topic. First of all, it offers a brief introduction to the dictionary and Noah Webster. Then, interesting worksheets cover over fifteen different dictionary skills, progressing easily from alphabetizing, guide words, and pronunciation to variants, homographs, usage labels, definitions, synonyms, and even word history paragraphs. Each of the twenty-one lessons covers two pages and includes explanations, examples, and exercises. Additional writing exercises are described on some of the pages and can be completed as desired. These offer relevant, creative writing ideas. After the dictionary lessons, there are five lessons devoted to the thesaurus, which follow a similar format. The back of the book holds fifteen vocabulary builder word workout pages, filled with fun vocabulary exercises for kids. The worksheets are reproducible and perforated for easy removal. Answers included, 84 pgs.
