Dictionary Skills

Oh....the dreaded dictionary skills! Every year that I've taught this (no matter what grade I've taught) they seem like the get it but then I give an assessment and it's like they have amnesia.  Maybe it's because I just haven't found a way to make it fun. I forget that I am competing with the video game generation. I'm pretty sure that opening a dictionary isn't the first thing on their minds. I can't blame them though.

I thought that if they could tell about themselves and do it in a way that integrates parts of speech, plurals, multiple meanings and more then WHY NOT? They love to talk about themselves. So here is their chance. I created an "It's All About Me" dictionary book. How cute it that? It's cute and it cover the standards.  You can't get better than that. I tried my best to do an example but I'm sure my students will do a much better job.

I plan to do this as a performance assessment at the end of my dictionary study I've been doing in guided reading groups.

PERSONAL OPINION: This year I'm teaching dictionary skills in small groups.  I can't believe I've never done it like that before. It's been so much easier and I can easily troubleshoot because they are right in front of me.  I don't feel like I'm running a marathon. Try it out this way. :)
