More Words I Use When I Write Grade 3-4


This personal dictionary provides an initial list of 1,100 high-frequency words, plus plenty of blank lines for new words chosen by the student or teacher. Additional words can be selected from textbooks, spelling lists, literature, or other sources. A section in the back of the book provides pages for contractions,the names of friends and family members, and other categories of words.

The process of adding words that are relevant and personally meaningful engagesstudents in learning and remembering. It also facilitates differentiated instructionby enabling each student to add words appropriate for that student. Studentsthen refer to their personal dictionaries when writing, so the words’ correctspelling is frequently used and reinforced. And as students expand the collectionof words they recognize and spell correctly, they gain confidence and a senseof ownership of our language.
