Dictionaries for 3rd Graders





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: WTV Rotary

Total Budget: $2,761

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Approximately 800 Dictionaries to 3rd Graders in the Western Treasure Valley, USA

According to Dictionary Project Educators third grade is seen as the dividing line

between learning to read and reading to learn. WTV Rotary wants to give third graders

dictionaries, an essential tool to assist students in receiving a quality education.

We anticipate we will be working with approximately 12 schools in the WTV representing 26 classrooms and approximately 800 third grade students. The project funds will pay for the dictionaries and the Rotary 4 Way Test bookplates posted on the first page of each dictionary.

For the 2023-2024 school year the Club will once again work with school administration

to determine the best delivery method for each individual school. In addition to the" A Students Dictionary" we will also be distributing the "Webster'sSpanish/English Dictionary" for Hispanic Students.

You have applied for a tier 3 grant project(total financing > $2762). A detailed spending plan is required for all tier 3 grants. Since your club is limited to a maximum of $1,381 of DDF, you could avoid the spending plan by lowering your total to $2,762. In the end you can always spend more club money. Lowering the financing will also make your reporting easier. It's up to you whether to change the financing or provide the spending plan. Deadline for signed applications is June 1st.


by Marianne Barker
