Spelling dictionaries are a powerful reading and writing tool for young students. Pages are a compilation of the Dolch 220 list (in bold) and other high-frequency reading and writing lists. As children write sentences and stories, they should use their dictionaries to find words they need to spell. Many students do not have instant recognition of all words, so they are developing both decoding and encoding skills. Other needed words can be written on the lines.
• Place cover on bottom and arrange pages with backs facing up (L M on top)
• Fold in half; unfold and staple with a long-arm stapler or stitch
Spelling reference list for older students

If they have this sheet for quick reference, students are more apt to check for correct spelling and eventually memorize them.
