Students in Grade 3 are required to learn to use a dictionary. Alberta curriculum states that students should be able to find a word and its meaning by using the guide words at the top of the page. However, many students have only been exposed to dictionary “apps” or online tools, so they are unfamiliar with the use of a traditional dictionary.
Please follow the link below for an “online” tutorial and practice session with your child. Brushing up on this skill will make the dictionary a more powerful tool in every student’s tool box!
