Spell Checking Made Fun

My students need 2 Franklin Talking Dictionaries.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Many students struggle with using a regular dictionary. If they cannot read well, it is very hard for them to locate the word. They have difficulty sounding it out or recognizing it without a picture to help.

The number of students in my class has increased from last year.

I am in need of more resources to better equip my growing class size. My students enjoy writing, but tend to rush through the editing process. They sometimes are afraid to use larger words because they may spell them wrong.

My Project

Students love to use these talking dictionaries in writing. They make the editing process easier and more enjoyable. The talking dictionaries also have the ability for students to practice their spelling and word study. They can play games, see the word written in cursive, and learn more about parts of speech.

I would greatly appreciate donations made to this project.

My students enjoy writing and with a class size of 30 students, extra materials would be very beneficial. These materials will not only benefit my current class but my future classes as well.
