A co-constructed online dictionary

My class has been using a co-constructed dictionary for the past month. I originally set the dictionary up with about 200 high frequency words. Since then the students have steadily identified words that needed to be added to this wonderful word resource. 

It is certainly pleasing to see that this word bank is useful to my students! I am currently working on a dictionary skills teaching and learning progression to keep track of what works.

Several teachers from other schools have expressed the desire to use this dictionary with their class. Please email me using the contact form on this blog and I will send you a copy. It would be fun for classes to share dictionaries later on if you are interested.
