Dictionary Skills Worksheets

This set of 5 worksheets has been designed to help children practice and enhance their dictionary skills. The scavenger hunt formate of the worksheets makes learning fun and engaging for students. Students will need a dictionary to complete these worksheets. They will be asked to locate specific words, guide words, definitions, and syllabication in their dictionaries. 

This resource can also be cut apart into separate questions and used as a filler activity at the end of class. Simply place a question underneath your document camera and have students compete to be the first to find the answer.
