Freebie Friday - Dictionary Day

October 16th is National Dictionary Day in the US. This week, the graphic is in celebration of this day.

Happy Freebie Friday!

Noah Webster (born on October 16th, 1758), was considered the father of the American Dictionary. He began to write his dictionary at the age of 43. A whopping 27 years later, he completed it!

The idea of this day is to emphasize the importance of dictionary skills. With all of the technology we have close at hand today, it is important that children are encouraged to practice using the dictionary. If the power ever runs out and they have a spelling/vocabulary emergency, they will still be able to find the words they need!

I'm always a sucker for a cute bear! So this week, I teamed my love of bears with the dictionary to create this Freebie Friday graphic. Click on the image to go to the graphic download:
