Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students desperately need dictionaries for our classroom. The set that I have now is old and torn. These dictionaries have small print. Sections are missing from them, and there aren't enough. I have only about five that are in good shape and complete. We need at least 25 new, complete, sturdy dictionaries as soon as possible.
I teach fifth grade in an elementary school in North Carolina. Many of my students come from economically challenged homes. They do not have a dictionary at home and do not have money to buy one. The only place that they have access is here at school.
We use dictionaries on a weekly basis for spelling words. The students also use them to look up words as they work in the other subject areas. Many of these students will not have access to this resource in any other place than in the classroom.
