In this age of “txt-speak,” emoticons, and emoji, your child still needs to learn to spell correctly and communicate effectively. Is your first grader ready to spell and understand vocabulary words? With the Horizons 1st Grade Spelling & Vocabulary Dictionary from Alpha Omega Publications, your child will be able to see and read weekly spelling words in his own full-color, softbound dictionary. This can be used as a companion resource to the Horizons 1st Grade Spelling & Vocabulary curriculum.
Colorfully illustrated, this supplemental spelling resource enables your homeschool child to learn the format and function of a simplified dictionary. Your child will improve his alphabetizing skills plus understand how to determine the meaning of a word within the context of a sentence. What’s more, your first grader will learn the simple parts of speech with each word entry identified as a verb, noun, or proper noun. And when he needs to know the plural or comparative form of the word, he’ll even find that, too.
This easy-to-follow dictionary also includes blank alphabetized pages which can be used to record working words learned throughout the year in other subjects. Each time your child asks, “How do you spell…?” you’ll have a handy resource to list the word and include it in future spelling tests with Horizons 1st Grade Spelling & Vocabulary Dictionary from Alpha Omega Publications.
