Parts of a Dictionary Poster Set

This set of dictionary posters provides a visual representation of the different parts of a dictionary and can be displayed in the classroom for easy reference.

Each poster in the set includes a clear image of the dictionary page or entry, along with labels and descriptions of the different components. Some of the key parts of a dictionary that are covered in the posters include:

  • Guide Words
  • Entry Words 
  • Part of Speech
  • Pronunciation
  • Definition
  • Sample Sentence

Overall, this set of posters explaining the parts of a dictionary is a valuable resource for your classroom as it will help your students become more independent in their language learning and enable them to make more effective use of the tools available to them as they improve their dictionary skills. 

How to Make the Most of Your Parts of a Dictionary Poster Pack

  1. Print the poster on large paper and display it in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the posters and slip them into a clear sleeve, and use it in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the poster four to a page and hang them on a ring as a reference tool for a resource center. 

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick! 

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.  

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.
