 * We suggest that teachers continue the student dictionary activity throughout the school year so that students can continue to make dictionaries
 of the words they learn in the second grade – a great data collection activity as well as a student resource.

        We suggest that teachers continue the student dictionary activity throughout the school year so that students can continue to make
 dictionaries of the words they learn in the second grade – a great data collection activity as well as a student resource.

 of the words they learn in the second grade – a great data collection activity as well as a student resource.
