Word Warriors Unite

Today we celebrate one of the greatest books of all time—the dictionary! In 1783, Noah Webster created the first dictionary with 70,000 words in it. The modern day dictionary contains about 470,000 words. If that doesn’t encourage you to pick up the dictionary today then maybe this will—the dictionary helps children with a lot of things and guides them in their understanding of language and words. The dictionary helps with the spelling, pronunciation, origin and the capitalization of words.

Today, and every day, emphasize the importance of dictionary skills to your children. Use a children’s dictionary packed with pictures to match the words to enhance your child’s vocabulary.
