The Perfect Picture Dictionary
I have finally found the perfect picture dictionary for kids at the elementary level! It's called The Oxford Picture Dictionary for Kids. The topics are varied and fit in beautifully with classroom curriculum. The scenes for each topic span across two pages with basic vocab listed at the bottom. Characters are found throughout the book and students recognize and connect themes through characters.
I have great discussions with my first graders using just the scenes and sometimes the stories/songs/dialogues from the cassettes. With my older students I use the work books, chants, activity books, charts and cassettes!
It's fun AND I can teach vocabulary, grammar and basic writing skills with it!
