Mrs. Weldon’s Classroom Edit display name

We have recently adopted a new ELA program which emphasizes vocabulary. We learn at least five new words each and are creating their own ELA journals where they can access these new words easier. My students are currently using over fifteen year old dictionaries that are missing pages, covers, and are falling apart. Many times, I have to just give them the definition due to the lack of resources in my classroom. Many of my students do not have internet access at home, so taking home school dictionaries is essential to get homework done. Learning how to use a dictionary is an important skill. I'm requesting a classroom set of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionaries. New dictionaries will help my students focus on their vocabulary work and not worry about if the dictionary is missing the page that the word is on.
