I am a proud teacher of 31 5th grade students in Newark, California. Our new reading program teaches dictionary skills. However, we do not have enough dictionaries for students to have their own copy at their desks. The majority of our students are English Language Learners and rely heavily on the dictionary to look up words for their creative writing and reading assignments and to find meaning in difficult words. The dictionary is used to find alternative word meanings, spelling, syllabication and phonics. Each of these activities introduces the students to numerous words and builds on their vocabulary skills. Building vocabulary and learning alternate meanings of words helps produce better readers and writers. I would appreciate your donation of 31 dictionaries to help my students succeed in the area of English Language Arts.
