When was the last time you looked at a physical dictionary? Not an online dictionary but a real book…… That is what I thought. Same here, a long time. I am very thankful for the internet and all that it offers but sometimes we need to hold real books.
When teaching spelling and vocabulary the dictionary is a vital too. I try to have my own children use the actual book not just the internet. I love the idea of children creating their own spelling glossary to help them with spelling issues as they have them. To keep a glossary of spelling or vocabulary issues that they deal with. Having these items written down makes a difference. The ability to write it down as you are using it helps it set in your child's brain. Just like having a book version of the dictionary can help our children.
What things do you use in your homeschool that are also offered online?
