Great starter 'dictionary' for 1st - 3rd graders. My oldest used this in public school and I'm so glad the I was able to find them here for my kids now that I am homeschooling. There are lines for extra words to write in as well.
My daughter really struggles with spelling and is constantly asking me to spell words for her (and the same ones!). This book is very helpful for her. Each time she asks for a new word she has to write it in her book. She keeps it with her when she writes and seems to enjoy writing a little more because she can do more of it on her own.
I used this book when I taught first grade. The students loved.It is a great way to individualize spelling and help students spell the words they commomly use. It made them more willing to write and gave me more time to work with students on other writing skills. It is well worth the price to get one for each student in the class.
