Word Knowledge

My students need 30 dictionaries.

As a 7th and 8th grade Language Arts teacher my students frequently use the dictionaries in my classroom. My school is in a high need community and funds are tight. However, my students need these resources to help them complete assignments and expand their word base.

Unfortunately, the dictionaries in my classroom are old and falling apart. The majority of my students do not have the money or the resources to purchase their own, so I am looking to replace the ones in my classroom.

My students need 30 dictionaries to help them complete their assignments and enhance their vocabulary. The ones I have selected would be perfect as they contain synonyms and we could do a variety of assignments with them.

Your help will ensure that my students get the quality education that they deserve. Thank you!
