Dictionaries for Third Graders





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Ontario, Oregon

Total Budget: $2,100

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: The Club will deliver dictionaries to approximately 700 third graders in the Western Treasure Valley including both public and private schools.

According to the Dictionary Project, Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn, so the Club wants to give third graders this important tool. A dictionary is an essential tool for a quality education . A student cannot do his or her best without one.

Members of the Club will deliver dictionaries to third graders in the Western Treasure Valley (approximately 700 students) during the spring of 2020. We usually have 12 to 15 Rotarians participate in this project.

The project funds will help pay for the dictionaries ($3 per dictionary) as well as the Rotary labels. The labels contain the Rotary 4 way test. The labels are posted in the front page of each dictionary.
