Make Your Own Picture Dictionary

print knowledge 85A letter dictionary is a long-term project.

What you need:

Notebook
Pencil, pen, crayons, or markers
Old magazines
Safety scissors
Paste

What to do:

1. Help your child head every page or two with a letter of the alphabet.

2. Cut out pictures from the magazines of things that start with the letters. Paste them on the appropriate pages.

3. Help your child label the pictures.

If it stops being fun, you can come back to the project at a later time. When you do, don't worry if your child forgets something. That's natural for young children.
