Today is National Dictionary Day – This Monday we Celebrate !
Dictionary Day is in honor of Noah Webster, considered the Father of the American Dictionary. Noah Webster was born on October 16, 1758. The objective of this day is to emphasize the importance of dictionary skills, and seeks to improve vocabulary.
My Bell Ringer for Monday ! Can you find Yours ? Do you own a printed version?
Why a printed version?
- Brain exercise
- Joy of pulling a book of the self
- Finding other words why looking
- Illustrations on the pages -no ads
- Looking around the book and finding something new
As a Mom that school at home I had to go look for ours. It’s so easy now to just – Goggle or Bing it ! My son does it all the time. Need a word,definition or spelling? Type it in. But today we are going old school and looking it up. And maybe we will learn some new words. Join me in Celebrating * Dictionary Day!
