Dictionary Shimcksonary

Hello Monday---already!? Where did the weekend go? On Saturday we went out to celebrate my boyfriend's 28th birthday! I also got 2 inches cut off my hair. It made me super sad to see it go but it needed it for sure! This week is also a 4 day week for us. We have a "Teacher's Meeting" Friday and then I'm headed to God's Country--Iowa for the weekend. I have so many fun things coming up for the month of October! Nashville, a fall party planned, my birthday, Mizzou Homecoming, and Halloween! Now onto new business!

Last week in class we made dictionary kites! I needed a dictionary activity that was fun--lets face it looking up words in the dictionary isn't fun! I started trying to find an activity on Pinterest and came across
these lovelies from The First Grade Parade. I evolved it a little bit to make it our own and ended up with these!
It went extremely well. I don't think I would have been able to do it with my kiddos last year but my kids in this room are so bright!They:
chose their own word to find
wrote the guide words
found out what part of speech it was
wrote down the page number
wrote down the definition
and some drew a picture of it if they finished early! They turned out so cute. A fellow teacher across the hall had a super cute idea also. She made a "dictionary" page using the students names in her room! They put their names in ABC and made a definition and syllable break down for their names.

It was a perfect time to do it because the local Elks organization donated a dictionary to every third grader through the Dictionary Project the following day! They were so excited, I couldn't believe it! We had an assembly and we looked up words together. It was like Christmas morning. I felt like Oprah- You get a dictionary - You get a dictionary! YOU GET A DICTIONARY! Check it out if you are interested in getting dictionaries for your classroom. I'm not sure how the process works but it may be doable!
I'm still at work and just finished my first paper for my masters! Yucky! Happy Monday! I'm going to bed people.

My third graders get dictionaries donated to them & I seriously said "You get a dictionary, you get a dictionary!" last year when it was happening. Hahaha, I think I was the only one who thought it was funny though.

I had no idea this was a national thing! I thought it was just us! I am amazed how excited they get about a dictionary and then they want to read it during reading time! How cute!

I know I think every kid should have one! I finally was basically begging them to read other books. I was like guys reading the dictionary isn't fun!! Stop!!
