All students should have a dictionary in their desk, not at the front of the class. Students need to become familiar with the dictionary for a variety of reasons and if it is used on a regular basis by students for them to become comfortable with using it as a reference. Dictionaries are a valuable tool for the students in their learning process and it limits the amount of time a student raises their hands to spell a word. Students need to learn that they are able to use a dictionary for spelling a word, find a meaning, or to assist in pronouncing the word. Brainstorm with the students the reasons to use a dictionary and place the answers on chart as a student reference.
