Summary: Dictionaries provided to third grade students in School District 308, Oswego, IL>

We have talked to our third grade teachers and they feel dictionaries are still a prerequisite in their teaching third graders how to spell and write. We will purchase the dictionaries from The Dictionary Project. We also purchase labels with our Club name and the 4 Way Test which we apply to the inside of the book cover. It takes the effort of all of our members to unbox, apply labels and rebox 1400 dictionaries. A few of us then transport the dictionaries to the various elementary schools in the district. We work with the Superintendent of schools and his staff to coordinate with the third grade teachers.
