Reading Comprehension and vocabulary building rely on competent dictionary skills. These skills can be the make/break point between students who are dependent on their teachers for explanations and students who can study independently finding their own answers. A dictionary is an almost universally overlooked fundamental in learning, yet its full use is priceless. Through pictures and words, this course teaches children how to use a dictionary, providing them with an invaluable tool for comprehension and the means to a powerful vocabulary. 3rd-grade reading level and above. Fully illustrated.
