Nowadays, there are a lot of tools at your child's disposal that are aimed at helping them be effective learners. One of those is the dictionary: with it, your child will be able to expand their vocabulary, develop their spelling skills, improve in reading comprehension, and become better communicators. However, in order to reap those benefits, your child should learn how to use the dictionary correctly first. For a few tips on how you can help them, continue reading.

How to Use a Dictionary

  1. First of all, your child should know the alphabet perfectly and the orders the letters come in. Sing the ABC song with them to help them reinforce this knowledge.
  2. Providing the right dictionary for them, their age, their goals, and their level is crucial. Your child should have one that is updated, preferably pocket-size, and of course, in English.
  3. Next, you should teach your child about the dictionary and its parts: the thesaurus, the part of speech, the words' pronunciation, etc. This will help them learn more from them.
  4. Then, teach your child to search for words effectively. They should start looking for the word's first letter in the dictionary, and use the guide words at the top to assess if the word they're searching for is in a certain page.
  5. As a last tip, ensure that your child comprehends the definitions. Tell them to search for any unknown words within the definition so they can get a clearer idea of the first word's meaning.
