I have been trying to find a personal dictionary to use in my class. I couldn’t find any I liked and had some time on my hands so created these.
Each dictionary has a box on the front for the child to make their own.
NB: We have just discovered these great handwriting pens! Buy them here – #affiliate link.
Each letter of the alphabet has a page. I have used the top 1000 words to include in the dictionary – but then allowed space for children to add their own words too.
On the inside cover there is a quick reference for the top 100 HFW.
The back pages include letter formation guides and a list of the phase 3 and 5 digraphs and trigraphs.
The books are printed on 8 A4 pages (printing on both sides) which you then fold in half. When printing I have printed the first page of the PDF on 160 gms card so the cover is stiffer.
NB: I love my long arm stapler for making books. I found this great one for less the £10 on amazon.
I have created them in 18 colours – so hopefully all of the children will find one they like!
