2 Great Invaluable Dictionaries
Using a Dictionary:
??The English language contains millions of words, but the average speaker only uses a small fraction of the current terms and phrases. Besides spelling and understanding new words, a dictionary can help users expand their English and improve their grammar.
Effective children's dictionaries include comprehensive and easy to understand definitions and combine them with helpful illustrations. The combination of visuals and words can help children grasp new ideas or words that they may otherwise struggle to understand.
If your child is struggling to manage a dictionary and use it effectively, you can make it a game to help him or her. Have your child pick a word at random and quiz you on its spelling and meaning; with thousands of words available, you're likely to not know a few, too! Then you can trade places and quiz your child. Using your dictionary in this way can make learning more fun and can engage your child.
