  1. Deborah H.

    This was GREAT applied practice for learning about how dictionaries work and their usefulness in the classroom. It had a huge variety of activities that made sure they knew all the ins and outs of a dictionary. My students worked on these in groups and enjoyed competing with each other.

  2. Lindsey Long

    It was an amazing resource and really helped my students get practice with dictionaries!

  3. Hannah Demirdogen

    Dictionary skills are a forgotten skill with students on chromebooks daily. My students actually asked ‘When can we do this again?’ when I started using this resource with them. They loved the mystery hunts and challenge aspects of it. They didn’t even realize they were learning while completing the tasks!

  4. Deborah B.

    Students are not familiar with using a dictionary coming from the 4th grade, this product help me help them to go through dictionary.

  5. Alyssa M.

    I LOVE this bundle! It was perfect for my 6th graders…they needed more familiarity and practice with using a dictionary, and this was engaging and interesting!

  6. betty R.

    I use this as practice using a dictionary. The students need to know how to look up words and what words come between the guide words.

  7. Magic on Every Page

    I absolutely love this resource. Students are more and more needing dictionary skills practice and this makes it super easy!

  8. Mary E.

    My students found this resource engaging even though they weren’t keen to work on dictionary skills! It provided relevant practice and moved at a reasonable pace for my students. Will continue this using this resource once we return to the new school year.

  9. The Reading Club

    I used this resource to re-teach dictionary skills to 6th graders. We had fun exploring the dictionary with the many different activities!

  10. Cassie Dahl

    These were fantastic!! My students enjoyed them and I loved that they were getting extra practice with dictionary skills (which can be tricky). Thank you!
