Providing your child with a few tools can improve their learning experiences tremendously. To guarantee they know how to use their dictionary, follow these tips.

How to Use a Dictionary to Learn

  1. The dictionary is arranged in alphabetical order. This means that, to use the dictionary effectively, the first thing your child needs to do is learn the alphabet by heart. One fun way to guarantee they do is to sing the ABC song with them until they memorize it.
  2. Of course, your child won't be able to learn much from the dictionary if they don't have the right one. For that reason, you should provide the perfect dictionary for them. Unless they're a certified genius, your child only needs an updated, pocket-sized English dictionary (one with pictures could be more interesting to them).
  3. Afterward, you will have to explain the dictionary and its different components to your child. For example, you should teach them what a thesaurus is, what it's used for, and how to use it. This will guarantee they'll take full advantage of the dictionary.
  4. Needless to say, your child needs to actually learn how to search for unknown words in the dictionary. To that end, they should begin their search with the first letter of the unknown words. Then, they should guide themselves with the guide words at the top of each page until they find it.
  5. The last step is making sure that your child understands the unknown word's meaning. If they don't, encourage them to search for unknown words within the definition to clear everything up.
