Personal Student Dictionary

     The personal student dictionary is a multi-faceted tool designed to assist students in their quest to master the art of spelling. The range of reference materials and information provided within, allows this booklet to effectively serve a wide range of students from grades 3 to 8.
     A page for each letter of the alphabet allows students to record assigned course words or those words which simply prove to be troublesome. Also within the booklet, students will find an alphabetized list of 1000 high-frequency spelling words, commonly found in 3rd through 9th grade texts. There are also vocabulary sections devoted to commonly used, and misspelled spelling words in mathematics (counting numbers through one hundred, ordinal numbers through one hundred, & mathematical operation terminology), geography (continents, oceans, countries, 50 states, and major U.S. cities), as well as calendar terminology (days, months, seasons, and noted holidays).
     The student will also find explanations for the use of seven different spelling word study strategies (LCSWC, Chunking, Exaggerated Pronunciation, Mnemonics, Words Within Words, Deconstruction, and Identifying Roots & Affixes). The presentation of these spelling strategies can easily be presented by the classroom teacher as spelling mini-lessons.
