Let each child decorate the outside of their pocket folder.
Prepare pages for their dictionary by running off the letter
pages. (Click here for letter page downloads) Hole punch and insert in the folder. As you add new
words to the word wall or have new spelling words, ask the
children to write them in their dictionary. Children could also
add vocabulary words for a season, a unit of study, or personal
words they want to learn. Encourage children to refer to their
dictionaries when they write independently.
