Have students look up the word root dict in the section titled "Word Parts," beginning on page 276 of the Spelling-Meaning Index. Ask them to create a word web for dict. If they like, they can create a web that suggests speaking in the way that the earphones and tapes in the aud web in their book suggest hearing. Have students check the definitions in a class dictionary and write a sentence for each word. They can then read each sentence to a classmate, leaving out the dict word, and have the classmate fill in the word.
