This week we learned how to use a dictionary. Yes, many kids said "just google it". Even my own 25 year old at dinner argued the last time he looked up a word was 2nd grade (the word weather). We talked about why is it important to know how to use a dictionary. Caden said "because you can get eye strain from technology". Eliana said, "if the power goes out and you need to know about a word". I wanted students to use their ABC order and understand how to look up information (a little grit is involved to stay persistent).
If your at school, check out our bulletin board with the new words we learned!
