Dictionary Skills

Here are some cute ideas to teach Dictionary Skills. At first I thought this was going to be boring, but I have to say I am excited for it now.

Here is a cute racing game:

1. Students set the timer for 10 minutes.
2. They choose a word from the folder.
3. They look it up and record the page number.
4. They try to look up as many as possible.

This is perhaps my favorite activity:  
Dictionary Kites

1. The student use the weekly vocab words to look up.
2. They write the word on the first tail of the kite.
3. The page number.
4. The sentence the dictionary uses.
