Dictionary-and-thesaurus-work-resourcesDictionary and Thesaurus Work

Knowing how to use these two things will encourage your students to be more self-sufficient (saving you question time in the classroom) and will improve their literacy work significantly. Just one of these activities a week will make an enormous difference.
