Here's an excellent post on Squidoo that has compiled a mass of information about Dictionary Day, the history of the dictionary, as well as activities for all ages to celebrate this special day. I remember playing the Dictionary Game when I was in school. I always enjoyed that one. I also like the idea of the dictionary race, but our little ones are too little for those games.
When trying to decide what activities I did want to do with the little ones for Dictionary Day, I first realized we don't actually have a dictionary! In this day and age of technology with computers and smart phones, I realized Google had become my dictionary! That's something we'll definitely have to rectify, so perhaps a good way to celebrate today is to go buy our own dictionary.
Don't want to have a physical dictionary? No problem. Check out this post for links to free online dictionary resources for everyone!
We are making a trip to the local library today to look for different kinds of dictionaries, learn some new words, and enjoy our language! How do you plan on celebrating Dictionary Day?
