Dictionary Skills Review Worksheet
It is time to get back to basics and help our kids learn to use a dictionary! I am troubled by the number of young people who do not know what guide words and pronunciation keys are. I suppose that in this time of online dictionaries and audio pronunciation tools, some folks believe a physical dictionary is a relic. My tattered relic is prominently displayed in my home and is visited often by both young and old.
I have created this language arts worksheet as a very brief activity to encourage students to use and become familiar with a physical dictionary. The worksheet provides practice in alphabetizing and syllabicating words, identifying guide words, and real world knowledge of the information found within the pages of a dictionary. An answer key is included.
